Board of Directors

Our firm resolves conflicts between board members and companies

Attorney Abraham Mathew understands that the value board members bring to their companies includes industry experience, knowledge and connections. Inherent in this is conflict, however, in that directors are tied to most of the same obligations as executives and rank-and-file employees. This includes compliance with laws, rules and regulations, to have no external affiliations that would skew objective judgment and action, and to not receive compensation, gifts, loans or any form of remuneration from third parties that are tied to the director’s position in the governance structure. Trade secrets also need to be maintained, of course.

When such conflicts arise – which can happen inadvertently – directors are advised to work with skilled outside legal counsel to find their way through and out of the conflict. Our firm routinely works with board members who need independent and objective analysis and counsel. We first consider the legal threats and solutions – relentlessly within the context of the individual’s ultimate objectives.

Alternatively, we counsel and represent companies when board members are acting in conflict with and to the detriment of the enterprise.

Conflict in business is common. So too should be achieving an optimal and productive resolve, be it through mediation or litigation. That’s where our expertise comes in.
