Corporate Governance

Having strong corporate governance is vital for the success of all corporations. The practice of good governance involves the creation and adoption of well-reasoned, clearly articulated and codified policies, procedures, and bylaws.

Taylor McCaffrey LLP's lawyers are adept at advising as to the best practices for corporate governance. We consistently help our clients structure and restructure corporate entities—both for-profit and non-profit - so that they serve their shareholders, members and stakeholders effectively and in a manner consistent with their intended objectives or mission.

We routinely advise on the structure of boards and board committees and assist in the implementation of important policies including codes of conduct, compensation policies, and workplace policies.
