Corporate governance remains in the spotlight in many jurisdictions, with issues including executive remuneration, board composition and balancing the interests of shareholders and other stakeholders regularly in the headlines. In response to this Chambers and Partners has recently published a new Global Practice Guide dedicated to corporate governance. Each chapter in the guide follows a question and answer format discussing the key legal and regulatory requirements in connection with the corporate governance framework, management of a company, directors and officers, shareholders, corporate reporting and audit, risk and internal controls in a jurisdiction.
Herbert Smith Freehills Chair and Senior Partner James Palmer acted as contributing editor to the guide. Other Herbert Smith Freehills contributors were Stefanie Wilkinson and Timothy Stutt (Australia); Hubert Segain and Stevenn Deavaux (France); Alberto Frasquet, Nicolas Martin, Oscar Cabezuela and Ignacio Segura (Spain) and Caroline Rae, Gareth Sykes and Ben Ward (UK).
