Corporate governance 

Strategic guidance and support.

The credit crisis has resulted in an increased focus on corporate governance issues globally. As a result, corporate accountability and governance risks faced by boards of directors are becoming a real risk to many businesses. 

 

As a leading global practice, we can provide strategic guidance and representation to you and your directors, officers and shareholders. Our proactive approach to corporate controls, compliance assessment and planning helps us to foresee and protect you from legal issues that may affect your business. 

We advise boards, board committees, individual directors, officers and company managers on their duties, obligations and liabilities under local laws and regulatory requirements. Our team can also provide practical advice on oversight of corporate transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, other business combinations, restructurings and securities offerings. 

We aim to relieve the administrative burden placed on you. Our team will provide advice, assistance and support on regulatory compliance in terms of: 

 

  • the Companies Act and the Regulations thereto 

  • the JSE Listings Requirements 

  • exchange control requirements 

  • the observance of corporate governance norms, practices and ethics, in terms of the King IV Report on Corporate Governance for South Africa 2016.
