Expertise Practice Areas

Corporate Governance

Our expertise in the area of corporate governance is widely recognised. Within this area we have closely supported companies with concentrated or dispersed capital structures, actively following legislative and regulatory developments and the best practices pointed out by market agents in this area (including proxy advisors and institutional investors).

In this context, we have supported corporate bodies and shareholders in defining the most advanced models of corporate governance in relation to sector and market benchmarking and their adaptation to each specific case, assessing the respective adoption and adaptation through assistance provided in the drawing up of the internal regulations and rules of conduct, regular monitoring of specialised committees within the administration and supervisory bodies, in the preparation of the annual report on corporate governance and in the practical application of the multiple national and community rules and recommendations (in areas such as remuneration practices, auditing, transactions with related parties, internal control, among others).

Our activity in this area is carried on as much within the context of the normal evolution of corporate life as in the context of specific operations, such as public distribution offers with a view to the diffusion of equity capital in the market (IPO), public acquisition offers, mergers, acquisitions and the negotiation of partnerships and shareholder agreements.

In this context, special attention is also given to the need for specialised advice in the corporate governance regulation of listed companies, credit institutions, insurance companies, financial intermediaries or other regulator entities.
