Partners Lillian Brown, Stephanie Evans and Justin Ochs will present on the panel "Hot Topics in Corporate Governance" at the Association of Corporate Counsel's Corporate Governance Intensive. 

Panel Description: Effective corporate governance encompasses a wide range of activities to ensure that corporate decisions are made and implemented to achieve objectives and to ensure ethical behavior and legal compliance. In-house counsel is a critical resource, providing governance support to the board and management, as well as external stakeholders. This panel will provide insight and guidance for both private and public company in-house counsel on current hot topics in corporate governance matters, crisis and risk management, and maintaining corporate privilege. Speakers will outline the skills in-house counsel need to provide strong governance support to their companies.

As companies continue to face emerging challenges surrounding the field of corporate governance, the call for in-house counsel to provide valuable insight to board members and senior management has become far more essential. This panel will provide guidance and actionable takeaways for both private and public company in-house counsel on recent developments and hot topics in corporate governance and M&A, in particular the following:

  • Hot topics for boards of directors, including managing conflicts of interest, diversity, technology literacy and accountability
  • Data privacy and cybersecurity
  • Increasing importance of environmental, social and corporate governance
  • Corporate culture issues and oversight
  • Updates in M&A
