Corporate Governance Counseling

advice on structuring transactions

Strategic planning and risk mitigation is one of the most important roles of our corporate governance attorneys.

Overview

The corporate governance needs of every business are different. They depend on factors ranging from the formal organization of the company to the particularities of its industry. Understanding how these issues play into strategic planning and risk mitigation is one of the most important roles of our corporate governance attorneys.

Morris James LLP assists clients who seek advice regarding how to structure transactions to comply with the Delaware laws governing business organizations. This assistance ranges from advising on the board's fiduciary duties in a sale of the company, to advising owners and managers of unincorporated entities, such as limited liability companies or limited partnerships. We also represent special committees of public companies in negotiations of mergers and other transactions with controlling stockholders and investigations of alleged corporate wrongdoing.

Our Corporate Governance Team

Morris James’ in-house corporate governance counseling team is among the most well respected in Delaware. Our attorneys are recognized by Chambers USA as “America’s Leading Lawyers for Business”, and nearly half of our partners have been cited by The Best Lawyers in America for excellence in their field and hold AV Preeminent Ratings from Martindale-Hubbell.

As well, two of our partners serve as members of the Delaware State Bar Association’s Corporate Law Council, which monitors and recommends changes to the statutes governing Delaware business organizations. Our partners also have been chosen by the Court of Chancery to serve as custodians or receivers tasked with a range of duties, from resolving corporate deadlocks to selling operating businesses. Knowledge from this work and our litigation experience informs our judgment.
