Corporate Governance

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.

Areas of specialization:

  • Functioning of the Board of Directors and its Internal Committees. Company secretary functions
  • Review and update of internal rules (Articles of Association, General Meeting Regulations and Board Regulations) and corporate policies.
  • Remuneration of directors. Remuneration schemes and policies
  • Preparation and development of General Meetings and management of shareholders' rights
  • Legal position (rights and obligations) of directors and senior management. Remuneration aspects and market communications
  • Relations with markets, proxy agencies, financial analysts and supervisory authorities
  • Self-assessment and external assessment processes of the Board, Committees and Directors
  • Strategic and legal advice on corporate transactions (IPOs, IPOs, IPOs, proxy fights)
  • Design and execution of ad-hoc training programmes for Directors and Executives in Corporate Governance matters
  • Preparation of Legal Reports and Opinions
