Announcing Goodwin’s Public Company Advisory Blog

Goodwin’s Public Company Advisory practice today launched a blog providing sophisticated insights on capital markets and corporate governance issues. The blog drills down on discrete topics providing critical analysis on issues that are most relevant to public companies and capital markets participants, including:

  • SEC regulatory developments
  • Capital markets transactions
  • Environmental, social, and governance issues
  • SEC compliance and reporting matters
  • Shareholder activism and takeover defense

“Public companies and their boards are subject to constantly evolving regulations and laws, and everchanging shareholder and stakeholder demands,” said Sean Donahue, chair of Goodwin’s Public Company Advisory practice. “Our blog is the go-to resource for companies and directors looking to stay ahead of corporate governance and capital markets issues, and is the latest extension of Goodwin’s leading one-stop-shop for public companies.”

Donahue along with Public Company Advisory practice counsel Folake Ayoola, John Newell, and Jim Hammons serve as the blog’s editors and primary contributors.
