Business efficiency depends on making quick and accurate decisions, so a company’s procedures for corporate decision-making are very important.
Several factors complicate this issue, including legal regulations regarding procedures and documentation of decisions taken, competing interests of the many parties involved, the direct economic effects on the company of decisions that are made under these procedures, and recognition of the risks associated with incorrect decisions.
Grigoryev, Merenkov and Partners offers unique services in administering corporate meetings of all types, specifically: general meetings of shareholders and of members; meetings of the board of directors and other boards, as well as other meetings of legal significance, such as creditors’ meetings; creditors’ committee meetings; constituent meetings; and congresses.
We offer advice in the following areas:
At every stage, from preparations for the meeting to the signing of the final documents, our actions are based on our professional understanding and application of the relevant area of law, our consideration of the possible legal risks, and our ability to interact with a large number of people.
The firm not only takes responsibility for the procedural details and formal protocol, but also advises the participants on the legal implications of the issues on the agenda, the legal effects of a given decision, and their personal responsibilities in connection with each vote. We also provide advice regarding the actions of other parties involved in the decision.
In our projects in corporate meeting administration, our priorities are full compliance with applicable legal procedures, achieving a profitable outcome for the client as a result of the process, providing a sound legal basis for corporate decisions, and minimizing the risk that the outcome will be subject to appeal.
