      Current Trends in Corporate Governance

      Corporate governance is the most important predictor of compliance.  This may sound obvious but corporate boards move slowly.  In many cases, corporate boards move way too slowly. Corporate failures usually rest on missteps and omissions by corporate leaders.  It is a rare case for a company to have a board that is forward-looking and in front of the curve. In the last ten years, there has been a revolution in corporate governance.  Starting with Sarbanes-Oxley and ending with Dodd-Frank, this l

      Sir David has chance to make his mark with corporate governance

      There seems little radical in appointing an individual who truly does deserve the much over used monicker of City grandee. Most people assume Sir David will be playing the steadying-hand role, organising the orderly recruitment of Bob Diamond’s replacement and keeping the chairman’s seat warm for a slightly younger, slightly less grand replacement in a couple of years time.

      New paper: Rethink reporting obligations for corporate lawyers

      Corporate guru Stephen Bainbridge of UCLA School of Law does not doubt the good intentions of the Sarbanes-Oxley provision that calls for corporate lawyers to report wrongdoing, nor of the Securities Exchange Commission regulation that codified the provision. Everyone hoped that when the SEC required outside counsel to report evidence of a material violation to the client's top legal officer or CEO, these new responsibilities would remind lawyers that their client is the corporation, not managem
