We provide advice to company secretaries and boards on corporate governance and related compliance issues.
For example:

  • This might cover the way a client complies with the UK Corporate Governance Code or other statements of best practice.
  • We assist companies with their disclosures and Code explanations in their annual report or website.
  • We help companies draft their corporate governance statements or critique their first drafts.
  • We prepare draft board papers for company secretaries.
  • We sometimes take soundings from investors and bodies representing shareholders, typically on an anonymous basis.
  • Through our straw polls of company secretaries in listed companies, we are able to establish what constitutes current market practice – and sometimes we can identify how companies intend to comply with regulations or best practice statements ahead of their coming into effect.
