Corporate Governance Disputes

Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP lawyers work closely with public companies as well as boards of directors and senior management to ensure compliance with ongoing SEC reporting obligations and stock exchange rules. We also advise companies in connection with fiduciary duties and shareholder relations policies.

Our public company specialists are experts on the complex factors relevant to boards of directors, audit committees, compensation committees, governance committees, and executive officers, and other challenges public companies face. We counsel our clients on Sarbanes-Oxley, Dodd-Frank, and other corporate governance initiatives that apply to public companies.

We advise public company directors and executive officers regarding their personal liability under the securities laws, including the focus on securities regulations specifically targeted at the trading activities of directors, officers, and major shareholders. We also prepare disclosure and insider trading policies that minimize legal risk while maximizing day‐to‐day flexibility.

DGS also works with clients to structure and administer stock option and other stock-based compensation plans in compliance with federal and state securities and tax laws. We have expertise designing executive compensation and employee benefit plans, including stock purchase programs that comply with complex regulatory requirements such as requirements imposed by ERISA.
