The Corporate Governance Code implemented in January 2019 makes the advancement of shareholder rights and the implementation of robust governance practices increasingly a business priority. Businesses in all sectors are setting higher standards of corporate governance to promote transparency and integrity, and in some sectors, attract investments. This session will address the regulatory and societal trends that are impacting this issue, the positive and potentially unforeseen consequences of the new provisions, and the value that counsel can provide in business policies aligning with the company’s strategy and values.
