Corporate Governance

Corporate governance matters are an integral component of Jacobs Law Group's corporate practice. We routinely represent clients in structuring investments, shareholder rights and member rights and obligations. It is because of this that we are partnered with The Tomorrow Group to provide confidential board review services through the Board Equity Partners.

Corporate Governance - Board Evaluations

Public, private and non-profit boards of directors seeking to practice good governance or conduct an effective peer review often turn to board advisors to conduct a customized evaluation process. However, using outside advisors raises the question of the level of confidentiality of the process. Jacobs Law Group's board service addresses that concern.

Jacobs Law Group's board review service comes with a strengthened claim to confidentiality; the attorney-client privilege. Jacobs Law Group process is attorney driven and overseen and the Board self evaluation is a component part of the overall legal review of the Board and its activities.

What makes the Jacobs Law Group board review process particularly effective is for the directors to have a confidential structured conversation without attribution and with the entire process subject to the claim of attorney-client privilege. This makes what is already an effective board leadership tool into a fully candid conversation on combined business and legal issues that can provide a true self-assessment of board function, drive improvement or other needed changes.

Jacobs Law Group provides attorney led corporate board evaluations in conjunction with The Tomorrow Group. When the Board retains Jacobs Law Group to oversee this process, we then engage the Tomorrow Group, whose principals have extensive experience in serving on corporate boards, to assist Jacobs Law Group in crafting a custom board evaluation process for each engagement.

By combining the skills of Jacobs Law Group's corporate and business lawyers and the serving director experience of the Tomorrow Group, we are able to offer the Board a confidential process run by independent counsel to strengthen itself, to identify any issues in its component members and to give the Board the information needed to make any necessary changes.
