Overview

The lawyers at Mitchell Williams draw on decades of experience to help clients understand, manage and—ultimately—minimize the risks that are increasingly present in the corporate boardroom. 

We offer insight and seasoned advice on a wide range of governance matters, including Sarbanes-Oxley Act compliance and structuring boards of directors and independent committees to meet SEC and stock exchange requirements.  With a wide knowledge of corporate best practices, we help clients meet their reporting obligations and other duties to regulators, as well as handle the executive compensation, employee policy, stockholder relations and similar issues that are a commonplace of corporate life.  And, when the extraordinary happens, we perform due diligence for mergers and acquisitions, advise boards of directors and special committees on their fiduciary responsibilities and potential conflicts of interest, and provide counsel on matters of indemnification and coverage and claims involving D&O insurance.
