Business Law: Corporate Governance
What Does Corporate Governance Cover?
Corporate governance consists of a body of internally-enforced rules that direct the business toward success, add transparency to the company’s management, and ensure the interests of all shareholders in a corporation are in harmony. Corporate governance policies generally include a range of checks and balances that keep managers accountable and boards informed. It also outlines the processes that must be followed to put changes into effect to ensure that employees, creditors, managers, directors, and shareholders are protected.
Many of the corporate governance policies include those outlined by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission). These include internal financial reporting controls, a code of ethics, and disclosure procedures. Also, policies such as those concerning insider trading, auditing, whistleblower procedures, and other compliance rules are put in place. To ensure these procedures and policies are effective and practical, Mann Law’s business law attorneys will share their knowledge, experience, and expertise and provide you with access to practical advice and resources.
