Ronan Discusses Director Duties and Board Composition

March 4, 2022

At Practising Law Institute’s 2022 Master Class on Corporate Governance, partner Alyssa Ronan will participate in a panel discussion on director duties and board composition.

The discussion will cover:

  • The duty of oversight — has the law changed since Marchand?
  • Potential issues for directors with multiple board seats (regulatory and transactional/informational conflicts)
  • Director independence (recent case law and considerations for board self-evaluations)

Ronan’s practice focuses on corporate advisory, corporate governance, and transactional matters relating to Delaware corporations and alternative entities. She regularly counsels boards of directors, board committees (including special, transaction and conflicts committees), and investors on M&A matters, governance matters, and situations involving conflicts of interests and fiduciary duty issues. She also renders opinions and written advice on a variety of matters arising under the Delaware General Corporation Law, as well as the governance documents of Delaware corporations and alternative entities. Ronan routinely advises public companies, private companies, and special purpose acquisition companies in high-profile strategic transactions.
