What Is The Role of Counsel in Corporate Governance?
Corporate counsel plays a critical role in advising and guiding the board of directors on corporate governance matters. This includes informing directors of their legal duties and potential liabilities, reviewing corporate policies and transactions for legal compliance risks, investigating issues on behalf of the board, and recommending best governance practices. Counsel also attends board meetings to provide ongoing legal guidance on the company’s governance. They serve as an expert resource for the board on laws and regulations impacting the business.
What Are The Four Roles of Corporate Governance?
Corporate governance serves four primary functions: guidance, accountability, compliance, and transparency. On guidance, the board provides oversight on strategy and direction. For accountability, the board monitors company performance, risks, and accountability to shareholders. Regarding compliance, the board ensures legal, regulatory and policy compliance. Lastly, corporate governance facilitates transparency through accurate financial reporting and disclosures.
