Following the end of the flexibilities afforded by The Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 (CIGA) in relation to the conduct of general meetings and following the publication of guidance by The Chartered Governance Institute (ICSA) we have reviewed notices of Annual General Meetings (AGMs) to be held after 30 March 2021. We set out some common themes around how companies are organising their AGMs in light of the guidance issued and the current restrictions in place.
We have a dedicated Public Company Advisory team which advises UK public companies on their day-to-day legal affairs. In particular, the team engages with listed companies outside of their transaction cycle and provides advice across a range of matters, with particular expertise in corporate governance and corporate advisory.
The team is experienced in company secretarial matters and regularly provides support to non-legal functions (as well as legal and company secretarial teams) within PLCs. Our clients range in size and maturity from newly listed companies to mature companies and from small cap companies to global FTSE 350 companies. The PCA team is part of the network of White & Case offices offering public company advisory services, with specialist practice teams in the US, Germany, Italy and France. We also have a market-leading practice for acquisition finance and debt capital markets (including high yield), offering innovative financing solutions for both bidders and targets.
With close to 600 M&A lawyers around the world, White & Case is an M&A powerhouse and one of the most active M&A practices among global law firms.
