Hodgson Russ advises public and private companies, nonprofit organizations, boards of directors, and executives on best practices in corporate governance and regulatory compliance. Our significant financial institutions and securities practices and our extensive experience in business litigation and bankruptcy contribute insight and perspective to our corporate governance practice.
Our attorneys are thoroughly versed in the myriad issues and regulations pertinent to the operations of company boards and the conduct of their directors, including compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules, and other related legislation.
We assist corporate clients in developing charters, bylaws, and compliance policies; in performing board self-assessments; in formulating board structure and advising on fiduciary duties and liability issues; and on issues related to executive compensation. We respond to inquiries from the SEC and other government agencies and assist in conducting internal investigations related to compliance violations, fraud allegations, and whistleblower claims.
