Corporate governance

Clients praise Farrer & Co for its unique philosophy and client care approach.

Legal 500,

Corporate governance is a complex area.  The frequent changes in the array of guidelines and legislation require close monitoring, but our team of specialists is experienced in gathering and concisely interpreting these developments for our clients.  We deliver clear, practical solutions that balance your business and commercial objectives with your governance obligations.

We advise on all aspects of corporate governance; from the requirements of the Companies Act 2006 in respect of directors' duties, to the application of the various codes to listed companies, and from risk management in the financial services sector to corporate social responsibility.  Whether you are an international public company or a private UK group, we will advise you on effective board practice and identify which codes, guidelines and procedures are relevant to you both generally and in respect of specific transactions.

By reviewing your existing policies and procedures, we can provide you with the assurance that your organisation is, and continues to be fully compliant in all its activities both in the UK and overseas.

We aim to build long-term relationships with all our clients so that by understanding your business and the wider industry in which you operate, we can effectively anticipate your governance requirements.
