Commercial Contracts

We have extensive experience in structuring and negotiating complex multi-jurisdictional commercial contracts. Our firm offers high-quality and tailored legal advice in connection with the establishment and management of our clients’ ongoing contractual relationships as well as the structuring of sophisticated business transactions.

We assist our clients with the negotiation and drafting of a wide range of domestic and cross-border commercial agreements tailored-made to address local legal concerns in the jurisdictions where our clients do business, including contracts for the sale and purchase of goods and services, know-how and technology licensing agreements, agency and distribution agreements, and arrangements with escrow, fiduciary and other agents for various commercial and corporate purposes.

In a globalized business environment, we also help clients navigate through export control regulations and anti-boycott restrictions.

Corporate governance

In a context of constantly-evolving regulations on corporate governance and corporate responsibility, governance matters require the attention of multiple players, including corporate directors, senior management, shareholders and other constituencies. We are highly experienced in advising clients on corporate governance requirements and best practices, and we guide companies through the maze of local and foreign legislation. We recognize that corporate governance is not an area where one size fits all, accordingly, our advice is always tailored to the client’s specific needs and circumstances based on a thorough understanding of market practices and regulations.

We regularly help clients design and implement domestic and international regulatory planning and compliance programs and policies, which often include dealing with market regulators to address specific issues. We give advice on the full range of corporate governance matters, including in areas such as director independence and qualifications, fiduciary duties and liabilities, executive compensation issues, business conduct, insider trading, compliance and disclosure procedures, conflicts of interest, related-party transactions, confidentiality duties, and shareholder claims. In addition, our lawyers counsel clients on both sensitive and routine disclosure matters in connection with their regular reporting obligations.

We often make presentations to, and participate in meetings of, board of directors, boards’ committees and senior management to address governance issues and risk management. Our firm also prepares and gives seminars and training sessions to directors, management and employees on the implementation and compliance of legal requirements and corporate policies.
