Corporate Governance

The attorneys at Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie have experience advising public and private entities concerning compliance with fiduciary duties, and defending against claims for breach of fiduciary duties. Our attorneys advise boards of directors, and various board committees, concerning compliance issues such as those imposed by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, executive compensation disclosure requirements, and other regulatory obligations imposed by the Securities and Exchange Commission and stock exchanges. We work with our clients to help them proactively address the continual regulatory changes and develop "best practices."

In addition to providing compliance, we regularly represent boards of directors and individual directors in connection with regulatory investigations, including formal and informal investigations performed by the staff of the SEC. We also represent corporate and individual clients in connection with private suits for damages, including direct and derivative actions asserting violations of federal and state securities statutes and regulations, and claims for breach of fiduciary duties arising from the common law.

Our attorneys also perform special investigations for clients, including investigations concerning compliance with SEC and related obligations. In performing our legal services, we work closely with client representatives as well as other professionals employed by the client, including accountants, compensation consultants and financial professionals.
