Corporate Governance We have worked on corporate governance issues in many contexts, including investment decisions, mergers and acquisitions, ERISA, and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. Our network of experts includes preeminent professors of law, corporate officers, auditors, compensation committee members, and corporate advisors.

PRACTICE DETAILS

Board Process and Fiduciary Duty

In many cases, we have evaluated the activities of directors, officers, and their advisors to determine whether they acted prudently and in a manner consistent with their roles and fiduciary duties. Our analyses have addressed mergers and acquisitions, corporate decisions, marketing statements, oversight of internal audits and processes, elections, and independence of directors.

Corporate Disclosures

Cornerstone Research has addressed the appropriateness and materiality of corporate disclosures in the context of financial restatements, mergers and acquisitions, and annual proxy statements.

Executive Compensation

We have analyzed allegations of options backdating, excessive golden parachutes, claims related to deferred compensation, and other elements of executive compensation packages that are difficult to value. We have also addressed the incentive structure of executive pay, and whether a company’s board or its compensation committee has acted appropriately in establishing compensation packages for corporate officers.

Piercing the Corporate Veil

Our consultants have worked with experts and counsel to determine whether a corporate parent and subsidiary have established themselves as genuinely separate entities. This work has covered the formalities of corporate structure and governance processes; the economic foundations of corporate veil law; and the operational, financial, and marketing relationships that exist between the parent and the subsidiary.

Seeking River North Parking for 5-6 weeks (starting in mid-April)

Hi, Neighbors! As you may know, the building on the SE corner of Erie and Kingsbury suffered a garage fire earlier this year. It will need major renovation, which is scheduled for this spring. Many tenants have to vacate their parking spaces for about 5 weeks beginning in mid-April. The building has secured some parking in neighboring buildings, but there are still quite a few who are looking for a solution. If you have a spot to rent out in the area, please let me know! Thanks!

Dies gilt in vielen Fällen, die wir kennen, wenn nicht aus eigener Erfahrung, zumindest aus unserer engen Beziehungen.

Nationalstiftung für Kredit-Beratung in den USA hat eine Umfrage, die ergab, dass fast 80 % der Menschen behaupten, verlieren sie Schlaf durch geldprobleme über andere Themen wie ihre Ehen, die Kinder oder die Sicherheit des Arbeitsplatzes. Es scheint daher, dass viele schlaflosen Menschen in unserer Mitte ein Großteil der unglücklichen Familien umfassen.

Im Allgemeinen sind wir uns einig, dass echtes Glück nicht kommt aus unserer materiellen Besitz, sondern in die immaterielle Dinge, die wirklich im Leben wichtig. Jedoch kann damit geld klug umgehen hinzufügen viel auf das Niveau der Zufriedenheit und Vertrauen, die Menschen haben im Leben...
