Corporate Governance

Our lawyers have decades of experience advising businesses of all sizes, from small family enterprises to publicly traded companies, with regard to corporate governance matters.  These include proper protocols for noticing and calling meetings, valid actions of the company, tabulation of votes, proxy solicitations and grants and other matters. We also advise clients on the proper procedures required for company action pursuant to the company’s internal bylaws and operating rules as well as applicable statutory and regulatory guidelines.  

Since the early 1970s, boards of directors have hired our lawyers to assist with defending challenges to corporate actions. The firm has successfully prosecuted and defended shareholder derivative actions in the North Carolina Business Court and in other venues.
