Governance, Regulation and Compliance

Our regulatory team advises the corporate sector and private businesses on regulatory compliance and governance protocols in a range of industry sectors. We provide considered legal advice on the regulatory framework affecting those industries and sectors and guide our clients through managing regulatory scrutiny of corporate conduct.

We have a dedicated team of specialists in the financial services and insurance sector with significant experience in fiduciary, prudential, capital and market regulation. We regularly advise clients in professional practice in the health and private sectors.

Our regulatory practice covers all compliance and corporate governance issues, including Directors’ obligations and liability, shareholder rights, financial reporting and disclosure requirements, and risk management.

We also have extensive experience advising on high level and sensitive Board decisions, transactional risk and crisis management. A number of our lawyers have qualifications in Corporate Governance from the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) and Chartered Secretaries Australia (CSA).
