Corporate Governance

Spencer Fane helps senior management and boards of directors and their committees to implement best practices in all facets of corporate governance as they pursue their business objectives. We have abundant experience serving as special counsel to boards of directors and independent committees in connection with internal investigations and responses to shareholder derivative claims and governmental inquiries. We provide expert advice in navigating the waters of the Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank Acts, drafting codes of ethics and business conduct, establishing committee charters, complying with fiduciary duty standards, applying the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, dealing with whistleblower claims, detecting and preventing fraud, and setting up governance systems that are both legally sound and practically workable.
