In particular the expertise of our Corporate/Commercial Law Department provide comprehensive advice on corporate law matters to listed and unlisted companies from the very outset, on their incorporation and up to the extinguishment of their legal personality, providing recurring advice and assistance and seeking solutions to any legal needs that may arise in their day-to-day operations.
Our advice includes professional support in tasks such as the formation of companies; the reform and update of articles of associations, internal directives, corporate resolutions and internal regulations; capital increases and reductions; analysis of the legal issues relating to the transferability of shares or interests; and, in general, support for boards of directors and other corporate governing bodies. We also represent our clients in the general assembly meetings of the companies in which they hold shares as minority or majority shareholders. In collaboration with our litigation department, we protect our clients’ rights related to the access to the information, dividends and appointment of board.
We counsel clients on all aspects of corporate governance, including day-to-day securities and stock exchange listing issues, shareholder communications, regulatory compliance and investigations, risk management, executive compensation, crisis management, and contextual benchmarking of board practices.
Our expertise also extends to negotiating shareholder agreements; legal or contractual issues relating to the composition and appointment of the managing bodies; dividend policies; remuneration systems for directors and senior managers; transfer abroad of the registered office; changes in corporate form; participation in national and international business restructuring processes (mergers, spin-offs, global transfers of assets and liabilities); the issue of bonds and debentures; and the negotiation of deadlock resolution clauses and clauses defending the interests of the company, its shareholders or directors in situations of potential corporate conflict.
