Thompson & Knight attorneys draw on many decades of precedent-setting work with public companies to advise Audit Committees on varied matters. We also advise corporate boards of directors regarding the formation of Special Committees and then advise the Special Committees with respect to their duties.
We regularly counsel Audit and Special Committees in corporate governance, finance, and operations, and when necessary represent their interests in litigation and internal investigations. These engagements often involve the evaluation and execution of sensitive and complex transactions such as corporate mergers, leveraged and management buyouts, consolidations, business combinations, and the acquisition and sale of assets. They may also concern corporate transactions in which conflicts of interest or minority ownership require director independence.
Our attorneys are particularly adept at negotiating and managing the diverse components of these transactions and balancing the interests and business purposes of the Committee and the board.
