Corporate Governance

TWS Legal Consultant’s corporate governance practice advises public and private companies, management, boards of directors and board committees on a full range of corporate governance matters and fiduciary duties.

We are able to assist our business clients with responding to shareholder proposals, preparing annual general meeting processes and practices. We also represent companies on the best course of action for corporate governance issues such as dealing with proxies, special and extraordinary general meetings for shareholders, executive remuneration. Depending on the jurisdiction, we can advise on securities laws and regulations for publicly listed companies.

We can also advise our clients on the various aspects of corruption and corporate crime. In many jurisdictions it is illegal to offer, promise, give, request, agree, receive or accept bribes. Therefore, many businesses, especially those operating internationally, need to have an anti-bribery policy in place. This is to protect the company if someone within your business could be exposed to or at risk of being bribed. We have experience in drafting and enforcing anti-bribery policies.

Our team regularly advise clients in relation to:

  • Directors’ duties;
  • Succession planning;
  • Financial reporting;
  • Loans to directors;
  • Supervision of audits;
  • Shareholder disputes; and
  • Drafting of ordinary and special resolutions
