corporate governance

Our accomplished corporate governance team has provided governance advice to some of the largest public companies in the world, including financial institutions, public-state-partnerships, telecom companies, and other organizations in Europe, Latin America and Asia, as well as the United States. We provide board assessments, best governance practices analysis, review of executive compensation plans from an investor perspective, shareholder relations assistance and governance risk assessments for companies of all sizes, from public to private, family owned businesses and non-profits. We also assist with developing governance programs that best fit the client’s strategic objectives while still meeting shareholder expectations, including developing policies and drafting the underlying charter, committee or policy documents.

Through SLG’s consulting arm, regularly advise public companies in Europe, Asia and Latin America on:

  • Responses to shareholder proposals
  • Proxy fights and hostile take-over bids
  • Executive remuneration plans
  • Governance benchmarking in relation to peers, international best practices, proxy advisor viewpoints, NYSE listing standards, institutional investor policies and other relevant markers
  • Internal development of governance structures and policies
  • Effective board and management composition and inter-relations

Regularly review SEC filings for both compliance and best practices, providing a recognition of the institutional investor viewpoint for things like CD&A disclosures, proxy statements, annual reports, and governance documentation on the corporate website.
