Corporate Governance

Jones Day's Corporate Governance lawyers are in boardrooms hundreds of times each year to help clients evaluate and resolve a wide array of issues in an ever-changing corporate governance environment.

The recent changes in governance, resulting from sweeping legislation, regulatory zeal, and activist shareholders, are among the most profound in modern corporate history. The result has been unprecedented scrutiny of management, empowered shareholders, and unsettled boards.

Whether our client is a company or an independent committee, we emphasize effective, business-oriented strategies and solutions to help clients navigate the new environment. We understand that good corporate governance is not an end in itself and that "one-size-fits-all" solutions don't work. Good governance advice must be tailored to a client's objectives and should be mindful of the many legal disciplines that come into play. Ensuring our clients' compliance with heightened governance standards is a given, but effectiveness in achieving corporate goals is our mission.
