Board Special Committees and Investigations: Selecting Disinterested Members, Establishing Role in Bylaws, Charters, Panel Discussion Sponsored by Strafford Publications, Inc.
Corporate boards can utilize special committees in certain circumstances. Special committees are recommended when a disputed transaction involves a controlling stockholder, a majority conflicted board, or there is the appearance of a conflict between a majority stockholder and the corporation. A special committee may also be warranted where federal regulatory investigations or whistleblower allegations implicate senior management in compliance and corporate culture failures.
Join Corporate Litigation and Counseling Partner Emily Burton as she discusses the use of special committees along with panel members, Partner Laura E. Krabill of Ballard Spahr, Julia G. Mirabella of Sidley Austin, and moderator, Howard Brod Brownstein, CTP , President and CEO of The Brownstein Corporation.
