Corporate Governance

We advise boards of directors with assessing and strengthening their corporate governance policies and procedures to ensure that boards and directors are providing sound oversight and are fully informed on key risks and strategic issues facing their companies. We believe proactive and focused corporate governance is essential to minimizing corporate risk in the context of regulatory and civil liability. We offer boards both legal and business related strategic corporate governance advice. Moreover, in addition to providing guidance on audit, compensation, and nominating committee obligations, we assist boards of directors in adopting best practices, self-assessment programs, strategic planning goals, and other practices characteristic of a dynamic, well-functioning corporate governance program.

Board of Directors Education

As directors’ responsibilities have become increasingly more complex and new regulatory demands continue, education must evolve to meet the corresponding needs of boards of directors. Bybel Rutledge LLP offers advice and designs educational presentations to address the current and broad range of issues that confront boards. We believe it is paramount for directors to pursue continuing education to help ensure the successful operations of their corporations.

We are frequently invited guest speakers and facilitators regarding board education, board best practices, and corporate governance matters.
