Governance

Back to ESG

Good governance will ensure the efficient running of a business, support from investors and consumer confidence. It is vital that every stakeholder understands the governance factors impacting decisions they are involved in, their rights and responsibilities and the rules of the markets in which they operate.

CMS is advising boards, shareholders, general counsel, managers and entrepreneurs, amongst others, on their roles and responsibilities in ensuring good governance. Whether you are considering local environmental legislation, personal liability of directors, equal compensation for all or use of data, we have the right experts to guide you to best practice.
