Corporate Governance and Fund Administration
Corporate governance and fund administration issues often play a central role in high-stakes commercial litigation, particularly in light of heightened scrutiny faced by boards and managers from investors and regulators such as the SEC. Whether related to insider transactions, incomplete or misleading disclosures, director independence, fiduciary duties, fraud/negligence, or other issues, BVA has the capabilities to analyze the situation and provide clear, persuasive expert testimony on complex issues. BVA brings a “real world” perspective to such matters, having advised companies, boards, and investment committees.
