Corporate Governance, Compliance and Investigations

Corporate Governance, Compliance and Investigations

IPO PANG is a leader in providing general corporate governance and compliance advice to our multinational corporate clients. Our services are especially needed when corporate headquarters are thousands of miles away and the company subsidiary, usually owned by a Wholly-Foreign Owned Enterprise (“WFOE”), is located in China. Supervision can be lax and standards of ethical conduct are vastly different, so our firm can help your business navigate. Failure to properly and timely address legal issues which can materially impact a multinational’s businesses in China is a formula for disaster. Our attorneys know the corporation laws and regulations necessary for our clients to succeed as a business in China, and they also 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 Chinese management to ensure liability and exposure of corporate officers in the home/parent country is eliminated. 

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 counsel our clients regarding 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 their company is not shortchanged. Chinese culture and sensitivities are never overlooked as they impact how a matter is viewed, investigated, and resolved. When clients need to help to resolve a problem, they turn to IPO PANG for advice and counsel because preservation of corporate principles is paramount.
