For anyone who has been dealing with both the intended and unintended consequences of Dodd-Frank, Sarbanes-Oxley and other new laws and regulations, Corporate Governance: Avoiding and Responding to Misconduct is an essential guide.

This timely book describes step by step the measures needed to prevent criminal actions within a corporation and minimize the impact of misconduct that may have already occurred. It discusses the process of establishing a corporate compliance program, how to recognize corporate misconduct, the duties corporate officers and directors are obligated to perform following misconduct, and the impact SEC and DOJ pronouncements may have on how the board of directors responds to allegations of misconduct.

You'll find detailed guidance on the role of counsel in investigating and advising on potential abuses, invaluable for both in house and outside counsel. Corporate Governance: Avoiding and Responding to Misconduct also includes coverage of executive compensation issues, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and other important topics, placing all of them in the context of the broader legal landscape.

Filled with legal and practical insights on how to prevent corporate malfeasance or handle it after the fact, this new book will help guide you and your company or client through a minefield of potential difficulties.
