Minter Ellison’s corporate HQ advisory team provides specialist advice for the corporate headquarters of ASX-listed companies on boardroom, management and shareholder relations, and all Corporations Act and ASX Listing Rules issues.
Led by pre-eminent corporate lawyer Bob Austin, the team has many years of combined experience advising boards, chairpersons, CEOs, company secretaries, corporate counsel and other senior executives.
The breadth of our capability extends beyond corporate and securities expertise to include other relevant areas, such as employment, taxation law and trends in corporate governance practice. This ensures that our corporate HQ advisory team delivers seamless strategic advice for our clients across industry sectors.
We advise many leading public and private sector organisations on the full spectrum of corporate governance, including directors’ duties, compliance documentation and commercial, legal and ethical standards.
Corporate governance work is often advisory in nature, and in many cases, confidential. Details of significant matters on which we have advised are held in confidence.
Our expertise includes directors’ duties and powers, the roles and responsibilities of board members and senior company executives including the chairperson and CEO, board and company meetings, indemnities and insurance, constitutions, corporate structuring, and governance practices of statutory authorities and office holders. We also advise on corporate governance policies and processes, for example, on related party transactions, securities trading, continuous disclosure and diversity.
We specialise in preventive strategies to avert corporate governance problems before they arise, for example, through online corporate compliance programs. Our SAFETRAC business provides leading, innovative online compliance programs for areas such as continuous disclosure, directors’ duties and insider trading.
