A Year of Corporate Governance - ESG Webinar Series

Corporate governance touches every part of our clients’ businesses, whether they are investors, listed companies considering an IPO or large private companies. We have developed a comprehensive programme of webinars focussed on hot topics in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).

Our UK Corporate & Finance practice provides end-to-end transactional and advisory solutions to our clients globally, across a wide range of capital strategies and funding structures.

The team advises public and private companies, private equity houses, funds, investment banks, financial institutions, boards of directors, special committees, supervisory boards, investors, and sponsors on complex domestic and cross-border transactions and on their significant commercial contracts and agreements.

We advise our UK listed clients, as well as our private equity backed clients and their investors, on all elements of company law and ESG, from advice on board procedures to compliance with disclosure and regulatory obligations, as well as analysing corporate policies, codes of conduct, and assistance with shareholder engagement.
