Corporate governance

In a complex and fast moving world directors and senior managers need to understand the responsibilities that are imposed on them in respect of their shareholders, employees, customers and the wider public.

Corporate governance and risk management are now major issues for managers in both public and private companies, as well as other organisations such as partnerships and charities. Regulations have multiplied and aim to enforce responsible management to improve the protection of shareholders and other stakeholders.

We provide up-to-date strategic guidance on a regular basis to many directors, senior managers, members of LLPs and trustees on issues surrounding the complex world of compliance.

This will involve assessing risk, not just to protect individuals but also the business.
