Corporate Governance

The effectiveness of an organization's governance not only plays a key role in operational success but also is increasingly central in disputes and litigation.

     • D&O damages are up sharply
     • Shareholder activist firms are increasing company attacks
     • Litigation funding firms continuing to emerge
     • FCPA and whistleblower filings

HSG has a long-established reputation as a corporate governance expert, both inside and outside of litigation, representing boards, insurance carriers and defense and plaintiff counsel. We understand that robust checks and balances, within and among participants, are critical for effective governance. Our team of senior executives draws upon on our deep business expertise to analyze and stress test the adequacy and operation of the structures, policies and processes in place to carry out corporate governance responsibilities, recognizing these are unique to each organization and the point in time.

Our teams of experts provide services in three areas:

1. Seminars on corporate governance basics, and also on specialized topics such as governance duties under conditions of financial stress and bankruptcy, corporate spinoffs, asset dispositions, partnership buyouts and other situations.
2. Assistance with all aspects of board organization and operations, including self-assessment, communications with management, and internal process improvement.

3. Stress testing and evaluation of board functions of both clients and opposing parties in litigation.
