Corporate Governance

Companies face increasingly complex issues of corporate governance, compliance, and social responsibility. Complacent companies and boards risk damage to their reputation and competitiveness.

Rimon helps you effectively deal with these challenges through sound governance practices. Our cross-disciplinary team brings unique backgrounds to help you meet two objectives: (1) manage risk through superior compliance, disclosure, and crisis management practices; and (2) create long-term shareholder value and competitive advantage through the board’s leadership in strategy and stakeholder relationships.

We counsel boards of directors, individual board members, board committees, senior executives, investors, and in-house counsel. We also serve non-profit organizations, foundations, family offices, and institutions.
