H.S. Grace & Company, Inc.

The experts at H.S. Grace & Company, Inc. have unparalleled experience examining, assessing, advising, and writing and speaking about corporate governance. It is not a one-size-fits-all approach. While there are some fundamental guidelines, what works best for a given organization at a given period of time will depend on many factors. Our experts can examine your corporate governance structure and programs for effectiveness and identify any weak points before problems arise.

  • Is your board structure adequate?
  • Is the structure and function of your board committees, in particular audit, compensation and governance, appropriate?
  • How are the roles and responsibilities of independent directors defined?
  • How does the management-board interface work?
  • Are the appropriate checks and balances in place for management and among the board to prevent unhealthy consolidations of power?

A robust corporate governance structure prevents problems – and provides a strong defense against regulatory inquiries and litigation.
