Corporate Governance

Our Corporate Governance lawyers have extensive experience in advising private and public companies, institutions, and not-for-profits across a range of industries in relation to corporate governance and head office advisory matters.

We work closely with boards, individual directors, in-house lawyers, senior executives, HR and company secretaries to advise on the implications of governance rules and regulations.

Our expertise covers directors’ duties and responsibilities, conflicts management, continuous disclosure obligations, board conduct and decisions, responses to regulatory investigations, annual reports, AGMs, EGMs and other shareholder engagement, constitutions and board charters, corporate regulatory compliance systems, remuneration and incentive plans, securities trading, D&O and deeds of access, indemnity and insurance, and company secretarial services.

We recognise that effective advice must be timely and tailored to the context of the problem and the nature of the entity. We understand the day to day issues facing those who run, or are responsible for, organisations, and we help our clients deliver good corporate governance outcomes in a practical no-nonsense way.

Our Corporate Governance team is fully integrated with experts in our corporate, tax, competition, disputes, financial regulation, employment relations and other practice areas, and we have experience dealing with a variety of key stakeholders and regulators, including the Australian Securities & Investments Commission, the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission, the Takeovers Panel, the Foreign Investment Review Board, the Australian Securities Exchange, and the Australian Prudential Regulatory Authority. Our deep market knowledge and enduring relationships ensure that we are able to be an effective part of any advisory team.
