Course Description

Length: 1h 2min    Published: 5/2/2017    
Board of director behavior has been under increased scrutiny in recent years. Attorneys who advise corporations should have a thorough understanding of every duty and legal obligation of the board. This program covers real life examples of legal quandaries faced by the board, and advises attorneys on how to help corporate clients navigate the endless grey areas of corporate law, while still being effective under the constant threat of litigation. Mr. Gordon also presents his acclaimed “10 Commandments of the Board,” which delves into the most vital actions a board must take to protect itself, tackling issues such as the duty of care, the duty of loyalty, proper control procedures, limitations on the CEO’s authority, and proper evaluation procedures.
