Corporate and Corporate Governance


“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success”. Henry Ford


In recent years the area of corporate law has gone through many changes, undergoing frequent and far-reaching legal reforms. In particular, in this area we have seen a broadening of the legal provisions regarding the corporate governance models of large companies, with national and international legislation on the procedures of shareholders’ meetings and boards of directors, internal control systems and the powers and organisation of committees.
