Corporate Governance

Decisions regarding business structure and governance can have great benefits for a company, but can also have tax and liability consequences. These questions can involve what business organization to choose, how to write and observe bylaws and article of incorporation, how the Board of Directors operate, what to think about when purchasing Director & Officer liability insurance, and what steps to take when creating a joint venture. The Corporate Governance section of FindLaw's Corporate Counsel Center provides information on these questions and addresses Business Organization, Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), Insurance and more. Find out more about these important issues in our Corporate Governance section.
