This interactive one-day Masterclass will provide you with a practical overview of corporate governance for listed companies that will enable you to evaluate the pros and cons of adopting a corporate structure in your firm

With the advent of the Legal Services Act, law firms could become investment or takeover targets and their governance practices may be subject to intense scrutiny. A good grasp of the corporate governance standards required of listed companies would enable your firm to position itself proactively to guard against threats and exploit the business opportunities arising.

By attending the Masterclass you will gain a basic understanding of the key principles of corporate governance and will learn how to identify and prioritise your current and potential future stakeholders so you can meet their expectations. You will be able to benchmark your firm’s current governance arrangements against best practice in the corporate world so you can respond accordingly.

By the end of this masterclass, you will:

Understand corporate governance and its key components

Gain insights into what effective corporate governance entails

Learn about the roles and responsibilities of the key players

Bring yourself up to date with the June 2010 UK Corporate Governance Code (which supersedes the Combined Code)

Benchmark your governance arrangements against those of leading UK companies

This masterclass is for senior level executives and partners who are in charge of their firm’s business and management strategy.
