Corporate Governance is on top of our advisory program and we specialize in Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) implementation.
The increased focus on directors’ and executives’ roles and responsibilities calls for systematic frameworks to implement critical corporate governance principles on ethics, codes of conduct, compensation, financial policies, and financial reporting. The system of rules, practices and processes by which a company is directed and controlled.
Corporate governance essentially involves balancing the interests of the many stakeholders in a company. Corporate governance became a pressing issue following the 2002 introduction of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in the U.S., which was ushered in to restore public confidence in companies and markets after accounting fraud bankrupted high-profile companies such as Enron and WorldCom. Most companies strive to have a high level of corporate governance. These days, it is not enough for a company to merely be profitable; it also needs to demonstrate good corporate citizenship through environmental awareness, ethical behavior and sound corporate governance practices
