Maintaining compliance with corporate governance and securities regulations is vital to keeping your business running properly. However, compliance and enforcement issues frequently happen, incurring staggering costs to your company and making it highly valuable to prevent the need for legal proceedings in the first place. Counseling, arbitration, mediation, and other legal services provided by David & Hart can protect your company from securities and governance liability.

Corporate Governance

Since 2002, corporate governance has become a big issue in business, especially after the passing of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Corporate governance laws have become more important and more involved in order to protect the interests of the numerous stakeholders in a company, including shareholders, financiers, suppliers, customers, and managers. Ultimately, the purpose of these regulations is to help businesses maintain a level of integrity that benefits the community as a whole.

Corporate governance laws set standards for reporting, accounting practices, and overall accountability of leaders within your company, including officers, shareholders, managers, boards of directors, auditors, etc. Compliance with these regulations is key to protecting your business from the financial strain that litigation can bring on while preserving your good reputation.

Compliance with governance standards includes establishing practices concerning directors, board and committee composition, analysis of fiduciary duties, and implementing procedures to minimize liability. Hart & David can provide you with experienced counseling in complying with corporate governance policies as well as assistance resolving disputes.

Securities Regulation

Tradable financial assets such as bonds, stocks, forwards, swaps, and other securities are all closely regulated by federal and state laws. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is the primary federal entity over securities regulations—regulations which are highly extensive to say the least. Keeping in full compliance with these laws requires legal experience, which is where David & Hart comes in.
