Corporate governance is the structure of rules, practices, and processes used to direct and manage a company. Good corporate governance starts with appointing the right people to the company’s management bodies – taking the principle of diversity into account and ensuring there are no potential conflicts of interest.
Good corporate governance is also about compliance with certain decision-making and management board work practices. Ultimately, good corporate governance is measured in terms of the content of corporate decisions.
Sustainability considerations are playing an increasing role in those decisions. We provide advice to clients on statutory requirements, as well as soft law and best practices, to protect them against reputation loss through poor corporate governance and leverage competitive advantages through good corporate governance.
