As a society, we only need to look at the number of recent failures and scandalous acts of fraud to develop a healthy respect for corporate governance and compliance.
From the back room to the board room
A proactive approach to compliance will ensure your business operates with minimal interference from regulators. Madgwicks’ lawyers are well equipped to advise on best-practice corporate governance principles and procedures. We can ensure that the interests of the companies, its directors and stakeholders are protected and meet their legal obligations. .
Contrary to some out-dated beliefs, corporate governance and compliance extends well beyond financial reporting. It encompasses issues such as executive remuneration and incentive mechanisms, standards and ethical behaviour, risk management and conflicts of interest. Our corporate advisory team, together with support from others within our firm and our external networks – have got you covered through the entire framework of corporate governance and compliance.
And finally, when things don’t go as planned – our Dispute Resolution & Litigation team has a wealth of experience fighting on behalf of businesses facing audits and investigations from Australian regulators.
If you need assistance with corporate governance and compliance, give our team a call.
