Overview

Burns & Levinson’s corporate team advises public and private companies, not-for-profit organizations, senior management, boards of directors, and board committees on a broad spectrum of corporate governance and compliance matters. Our expertise includes the Securities & Exchange Act of 1934, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Dodd-Frank Act, the NYSE and NASDAQ governance rules, and other applicable state and federal laws. Our best practices position clients to proactively manage risk, capitalize on opportunities, and maintain constructive shareholder relationships.

One size does not fit all. Our client-centered approach considers the industry-specific issues and business implications unique to each party, enabling our team to provide balanced advice and custom-built strategies. Frequently, we are retained to provide corporate governance guidance in connection with directors' duties in change of control transactions, executive succession planning and implementation, financial reporting, and all manner of internal investigations. We leverage our extensive network, expertise, and experience with mergers and acquisitions, tax, executive compensation, and corporate governance dispute resolution with each representation.
