Every organisation will have some form of governing body and we see many common issues that affect them all. The key is to understand what those rules set out and how they interact with what is required under legislation.
We often provide advice regarding meetings, decision making, procedure, reporting requirements, the difference between managing and governing, and more. Often this comes back to what the founding documents of the organisation say – for a Company that will usually be the Constitution and the Shareholders’ Agreement. For other entities it could be a Trust Deed or other founding document. We would be happy to discuss your governance questions.
We have experience in all aspects of governance law including
- Shareholders’ Agreements
- Quorum for meetings
- Appointment of Officers
- Decision making powers
