In the wake of corporate scandals and diminished confidence in business and the financial markets, the need has never been greater for a handbook detailing how to operate a responsible public company. Public Companies is designed to aid directors, officers and general counsel of public companies and those intending to go public. More than just a "how-to guide", it is a comprehensive examination of corporate governance, internal controls and law compliance requirements, as well as the many other issues one needs to consider to be a responsible corporate citizen. Coverage includes legal obligations, best practices, new developments and pragmatic approaches to common problems for start-up companies and well-established businesses alike.
You'll get advice and analysis from start to finish—from the decision to go public to organizing the corporation, doing an IPO and meeting ongoing reporting and registration requirements. You'll learn all about setting up law compliance programs, implementing finance and accounting controls, complying with the regulatory scheme created by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, and communicating with shareholders. You'll also find chapters on e-commerce, financially troubled companies and other important subjects.Public Companies is the complete guide for executives, lawyers and entrepreneurs dedicated to establishing or sustaining a responsible public company.
