Special Committees and Board Representations

Debevoise regularly counsels special committees and boards of directors on the most complex, sensitive and important matters they face, including going-private and other conflict-of-interests transactions, corporate governance matters, internal investigations, disclosure matters, and responding to stockholder litigation and regulatory actions. These situations are not only critically important to the company, they also put directors’ reputations on the line. To help directors navigate safely through the most challenging environments, Debevoise draws on its strengths across the firm. Corporate transactional lawyers, disclosure lawyers, litigators and regulatory lawyers work closely together to construct sound, thoughtful processes that enable special committees and boards of directors to address difficult situations in a highly effective manner.
