Serving on a company's board of director carries with it a number of responsibilities and legal duties. Failure to adhere to these duties can subject board members to serious consequences. In this program, attorney Douglas Gordon will unpack the legal responsibilities of the board of directors, covering several real-world examples and high-profile cases to shed light on what the board should and should not do. He will also give corporate counsel the tools they need to maximize board empowerment. 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.

Featured Reviews

"This was extremely well presented. I feel so much clearer on the concepts that Atty. Gordon addressed. His examples were right on point and the cases/stories and quotes made this otherwise dry material so much more palatable. His experience and passion for the subject was obvious. I wish you could present this to law students before they graduate....I think that more would look into serving in the role as corporate counsel."
