Governing Health Corporate Governance Resources for the General Counsel: Executive Compensation Trends [PODCAST]

The current economic environment, regulatory oversight and public scrutiny of corporations and their leadership raise a host of legal and reputational risk areas that in-house lawyers must address strategically and proactively.

McDermott’s Governing Health thought leadership series brings director-level education out of the boardroom with succinct, engaging, issue-based resources designed with the general counsel’s office in mind. Whether you prefer to read your news or listen on the go, Governing Health provides practical and timely insight into the risk areas corporations face and how the general counsel's office can address them.
