In recent years, corporate governance has become a very relevant area of legal advice for listed companies and other types of entities (foundations, associations, credit institutions, insurance companies, family businesses, etc.).
Gómez-Acebo & Pombo’s Corporate Governance team is made up of partners with recognised experience, who have the additional support of our Advisory Board and specialised consultants integrated into the team. This allows us to offer advice that takes into account not only legal aspects, but also market practices, good governance recommendations and criteria of institutional investors and proxy advisors.
In this context, our advice goes beyond the strictly corporate and securities market, integrating other areas of the firm, such as accounting, criminal and tax law, etc. This involves, in line with international best practices, a global and coordinated approach to corporate governance and regulatory compliance, the aim of which is to prevent, detect and deal with corporate infringements and avoid the liability of the entity and its directors and executives.
