Corporate Governance

Overview

Robust corporate governance has become more important today not only in the interest of building a strong business franchise but also to meet regulatory standards and outside investor expectations. Listed companies, investment funds, private equity funded enterprises, joint ventures and regulated financial institutions in particular must put in place a governance framework which can enhance value and guard against inappropriate behaviour.

Our lawyers have broad ranging experience in corporate governance related matters, advising on issues such as board composition and board policies, director’s duties and liabilities, director nominations, independence issues, and internal controls. We have experience in assisting clients on compliance with regulatory obligations, whether arising under the Listing Rules of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong or under statutory regimes such as those administered by the Securities and Futures Commission, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority and the Insurance Authority.
