Houthoff offers governance stress test
1 November 2021
In the world today, governance presents significant challenges for companies, particularly in the international arena.The playing field is becoming increasingly complex, shareholders are more demanding, the number of stakeholders is growing, and regulations are constantly evolving. As a result, boards and supervisory boards might find themselves under pressure at unforeseen moments.
A stress test is a tool that quickly shows how well the company’s governance structure is capable of withstanding critical situations: situations such as hostile takeovers, internal conflicts, problems with the authorities, major legal proceedings and changes in legislation such as the new Dutch Management and Supervision of Legal Entities Act (Wet bestuur en toezicht rechtspersonen), which entered into force on 1 July 2021.
Our multidisciplinary team with experts in corporate governance and regulatory and corporate litigation are adept in carrying out governance stress tests to improve and reinforce your governance practices.
