Successfully Using Special Committees to Safeguard a Business: Critical Legal Considerations

Tuesday, December 14, 2021, 12:00-1:30 p.m. ET


 
The use of special committees is on the rise and the processes for running them are under scrutiny. Given the varied nature of special committees, there is not one set of rules or guidelines. Become more familiar with the general principles underlying special committees in order to better advise your clients about how to use them appropriately, with insights from experts on: 

  • When a board should establish a special committee of independent directors
  • Effectively drafting a special committee mandate: what is the right approach?
  • Setting up a committee: composition, remuneration, statutory requirements and governance best practices
  • Outlining duties and how they should be discharged
  • Defining relationships with the board, with management and with any outside advisors
  • Determining what disclosure must be made and how best to disclose fees
  • Managing conflicts of interest: assessing the independence of a committee member
