Frank Aquila, Krishna Veeraraghavan and Marc Morgenthau Offer Advice to Boards of Directors on Preparing for 2013 Proxy Season

January 2013

Bloomberg/BNA’s Corporate Accountability Report published the article, “Memo to the Board of Directors: Preparing for 2013,” co-authored by Messrs. Aquila, Veeraraghavan and Morgenthau. The article outlined four corporate governance areas that a board of directors should examine now before moving into the new proxy season. The authors examined topics such as the duties of the lead director versus the independent chair, the ability to call special meetings, shareholder action by written consent and proxy access. The article was based on the S&C client memo, “2012 Proxy Season Review.”
