Corporate Governance

Ferriter Scobbo attorneys are well versed in the structures and processes that govern corporate entities, partnerships, membership organizations, municipalities and other forms of business enterprises.

Ferriter Scobbo advises boards of directors on their fiduciary, legal and contractual responsibilities to the many employees, shareholders, members, lenders, suppliers, customers and government organizations they reach. For smaller businesses, this includes the relative rights and responsibilities of controlling and minority shareholders.

 A central theme of our approach is identifying risks or mitigating those risks and preventing litigation among the various aspects or entity contributers. We advise on processes, policies and laws, all while maintaining your goals and objectives.
