How we can help

 

We work with clients in the analysis and structuring of corporate governance models, including:

 

  • Governance Structure Analysis: we work with clients on the preparation of a governance structure analysis, including an analysis of property, management and control environment structures in comparison with the domestic and foreign governance leading practices.
  • Modeling of the Implementation and Governance Structure: in line with clients’ strategic objectives, we developed governance models to be implemented so as to achieve improvements in their reporting and decision-making processes.
  • Board Advisory: we support the Boards of Directors in defining its structure and way of operating, considering the company's specific needs and the independent directors' characteristics.
  • Self-assessment of the Board of Directors and Audit Committee: based on a self-assessment, we support Boards and Committees in dealing with their activities and responsibilities in an appropriate manner, leaving a record of their operation, even to new board members.
  • IPO Advisory: we assess the level of preparation of the company for going public, identifying its needs and the adjustments to be made to its governance structure. We assist in the preparation of the Reference Form and in the structuring of the Investors Relations area and the Governance Portal.
