Corporate Governance

Corporate Governance

Boards of directors and senior management of public and private companies rely on Waller for corporate governance guidance and strategic planning. Our attorneys help clients balance the interests of stakeholders while adhering to internal policies and business plans.

We partner with our clients to make sure that management and boards are equipped to handle strategic as well as operational issues. Waller has built a reputation as a go-to firm for corporate officers and directors seeking advice on best practices.

As Congress, the SEC, the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ have implemented stricter corporate governance rules and regulations, Waller remains at the forefront of these changes and maintains its reputation as a leading corporate governance firm. 

Boards of directors, trustees, senior management and audit committees of public and private for-profit corporations and not-for-profit organizations rely on Waller's corporate governance attorneys for guidance and strategic planning. Our corporate governance practice includes attorneys experienced in a wide range of legal disciplines including corporate and securities law and regulation, counseling of boards and committees, dealings with activist shareholders, contests for control, anti-takeover protection and more.

Corporate clients rely on our team for a variety of matters, including:

  • Formation of corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies, including preparation of organizational documents and agreements among investors
  • Review and preparation of operational contracts
  • Disclosure controls and procedures
  • D&O liability insurance policy coverage
  • Document retention and destruction policies and procedures
  • Compliance and ethics programs tailored to individual company needs
  • Training programs for executives, board members, and employees to help ensure compliance with corporate governance regulations, exchange listing requirements and company policies
