What is corporate governance and compliance and why is this mandatory to protect the integrity of the corporate veil in San Diego and throughout California and the US? The corporate veil is simply the legal designation for the entity that separates the shareholders, officers and directors of a corporation from personal liability for business liabilities and obligations. There are specific actions related to corporate governance and compliance that must be taken each year to ensure that the foundation of corporate documents, policies, procedures, and the actions of its employees and shareholders is in full compliance with all federal, state and local laws and regulatory mandates.
Recent years have brought dramatic change in both the legal corporate landscape as well as the activism of shareholders. Corporate officers and the Board of Directors must take consistent action to ensure compliance with federal requirements and regulations associated with Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank. The experienced corporate attorneys at Allen Barron ensure that all corporate documents and bylaws are kept current and in compliance with all associated changes and updates to associated laws.
We help to resolve disputes internally and externally, and work to ensure that all levels of the organization understand their responsibilities and how to represent the corporation within the scope of their capacities. We assist with all aspects of the corporate board of directors including hiring, changes, compensation and legal advisory services.
Maintaining compliance with all corporate and employment laws while maintaining effective standards for all officers, directors and members of the corporate family ensures that legal exposures are kept to a minimum and that the corporate veil is protected.
