Corporate Governance, Compliance and Investigations
IPO PANG is a leader in providing general corporate governance and compliance advice to our multinational corporate clients. Nowhere is this service more acutely needed than when the corporate headquarters is thousands of miles away and the company subsidiary (generally a WFOE) is in China where supervision is laxed and standards of ethical conduct are vastly different. Failure to properly and timely address legal issues which materially and regularly impact multinational’s businesses in China is a formula for disaster. Our boardroom practice covers all elements of company law and our attorneys often attend board meetings as an observer to ensure the legal elements are identified and legal risks are minimized. We also often work hand in hand with local management to ensure liability and exposure of corporate officers in the home/parent country is eliminated. corporate governance and compliance run amok, IPO PANG has substantial experience in identifying the issues, forensically investigate the problem areas, protect the confidentiality of employee data, seek assistance and partnership from authorities when needed, and assist with transition to a new management team when “cleaning house” is necessary. We help design, draft and implement corporate policies, codes of conduct, and ethical behavior programs that enrich employee experience, motivate their work efforts and incentivize their long-term commitment and loyalty to the company. Our team of seasoned attorneys regularly counsels our clients on governing regulations, shareholder communication and obligations, best practices under Chinese law and more. When conflicts of interest arise or when related party transactions are not transparent, clients come to IPO PANG for advice and counsel to ensure the company is not shortchanged. Chinese culture and sensitivities are never overlooked as they impact how a matter is viewed, investigated and resolved. “When Being Right Matters®” clients come to IPO PANG for advice and counsel as preservation of corporate principles is paramount.
