Corporate Governance Of Subsidiaries: Emerging Risks And Best Practices

Webinar: ID# 1015089
Recorded CD
About This Course:
An evolving regulatory environment and heightened government and investor scrutiny of public companies has corporate boards of directors taking more seriously their responsibility for ensuring compliance with myriad federal and state laws and delivering fiscal accountability. For companies with subsidiary networks, instituting effective corporate governance practices is even more complex and challenging.

From appointing board members, to defining the role of the subsidiary board vs. the parent board, to establishing risk management responsibility and accountability, subsidiary governance handled incorrectly can result in unintended legal and financial liabilities for the parent company and subsidiary as well as personal exposure for parent and subsidiary company directors and officers.

Listen as our authoritative panel discusses key considerations for boards of directors of subsidiaries and their parent companies. The panel will discuss appropriate corporate governance structures for subsidiary boards; the subsidiary board's role in managing risk, setting strategy and determining compensation; and best practices for minimizing liability risks.
