      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
