As 2013 comes to a close, boards are already preparing for 2014. One item that should be on each directors agenda is to pause and consider the key areas of board focus for 2014. To that end, Martin Lipton of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen and Katz has published his annual summary of thoughts for boards of directors, Key Issues for Directors in 2014. These key issues span topics including engagement with management, director recruitment, engagement with shareholders and response to governance activists.
Key Issues for Directors in 2014 has been published on The Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation and can be found at the link below.
