Corporate Governance

The laws governing business entities have evolved a long way since “control” meant owning 51% of the stock.

Today’s corporate laws, especially in forward-thinking states like Delaware, allow for a virtually unlimited number of governance structures. The 99% owner can have total control or no control; a Board of Directors of six individuals can be controlled by one of them or five; special interests (for example, business founders or investors) may be given special control rights; one group of managers can have control over some aspects of the business while another group has control over others.

Our business and corporate lawyers help design the right governance structure for your business.
