As the regulatory landscape continues to change, Blakes takes pride in being at the forefront of advice on issues relating to corporate governance. The Blakes team is comprised of lawyers with extensive experience in a wide range of areas concerning corporate governance matters, including corporate law, securities regulation, directors' and officers' liability and insurance, and corporate litigation issues.
Our clients benefit from our understanding of the requirements of corporate governance regulation, legislation and best practices. We advise our clients on the implementation of compliance programs on an ongoing basis. Blakes also assists public companies to comply with applicable regulatory reporting and disclosure requirements and restrictions. Our lawyers regularly serve as special counsel to boards of directors and special committees. We also assist clients with internal investigations to ensure continuing compliance with applicable laws, and in response to government investigations and proceedings.
Several members of the Firm lecture on corporate governance and have made numerous presentations on the subject to industry and other associations. We are very active in dealing with the increasing profile of corporate governance issues in North America, particularly in light of the constantly changing rules and practices of corporate governance.
