Corporate Governance

There are two major reasons to diligently adhere to corporate governance practices:

  1. To maximize the shareholder asset protections afforded by incorporation;  and
  2. To assure that the chain of authority is followed in order to minimize the chances for unauthorized conduct that could expose the business to liability.



At its most basic, Shareholders select Directors to oversee their interests and Directors select Officers to conduct the day-to-day operations of the business. Each of these three tiers of corporate governance have their own rights and obligations. We provide education on the structure and requirements of corporate governance and then work with each of these three groups to assure that the corporate governance requirements are met. These can include any or all of these steps:

  •    Formation (articles of incorporation, bylaws, etc.)
  •    Share Registers
  •    Shareholder Meetings, Minutes and Resolutions
  •    Board of Directors Meetings, Minutes and Resolutions
  •    Officer Authorities



In addition to these basic corporate governance areas, we work with our clients to develop stock programs such as:

  •    Restricted Stock
  •    Stock Options
  •    Phantom Stock
