Boards and special committees need advice from experienced professionals in the context of transactions and in the day-to-day operations of their governance structure. BLG’s Corporate Governance and Special Committees Group can assist in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. In particular, the group focuses on assisting boards of directors and trustees, committees of boards, management, shareholders and other stakeholders of public issuers.
The group offers extensive experience, along with thorough, up-to-date knowledge of current developments in the corporate governance area, both in Canada and internationally. As part of our corporate governance advisory practice, we can assist you with identifying potential issues and devising proactive solutions. The group has access to the multidisciplinary expertise of professionals across our full-service firm.
We regularly assist clients with corporate governance issues relating to board and committee mandates and processes, governance policies, investigations, reviews and reports, director and officer liability issues, conflict of interest matters, going private and related party transactions. The group has also acted on behalf of special committees for the board of directors of public companies, on a variety of assignments and transactions. While the role of governance counsel may vary, we strive to deliver the most efficient and best possible service to our clients, ensuring we do not unnecessarily duplicate services already available to the client.
