Public Corporate Governance

We provide comprehensive advice to state-owned or state-governed companies as well as parliaments, governments and public authorities in all matters of public corporate governance.

Misguided incentives and a lack of supervision of the state as owner of companies can have far-reaching consequences, attract undesired media attention and be followed by a loss of public confidence. Conversely, too much influence in strategic and operational matters of state-owned or state-governed companies by the state may result in a mixing of responsibilities, in inefficiencies and in liability risks. Our proven experts in the field of public corporate governance advise state-owned or state-governed companies, their directors and officers as well as state bodies at the federal, cantonal and municipal level in the control, management and supervision of state-owned or state-governed companies.
