We also represent businesses that need assistance in enforcing their rights or complying with their obligations in the corporate governance process. Our lawyers have ensured that requests for records, consents and resolutions are prepared and that meetings of directors and managers are undertaken and documented in a manner that will protect our clients in the event of litigation.
