King & Spalding Creates Corporate Governance Center Offering Insights and Resources for Public Company Directors

ATLANTA, GA and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2013) - The international law firm King & Spalding has established an online Directors Governance Center that will provide public company directors with curated and original content on corporate governance issues, as well as practical resources, commentary from governance thought leaders and insight from the Center's editors.

King & Spalding established the Center, at www.directorscenter.com, to provide directors with the best available information on evolving governance issues and best practices to support their board and committee service. The Center will present articles, reports and research from a broad array of sources, along with additional interpretation and insight from King & Spalding experts. Users can browse by topic, board committee, "tagged" cross-references and subjects, or use the site's full-text search feature.

"While there is a wealth of governance content available, keeping up with relevant research and insight on a regular basis is a challenge for corporate directors," said Jeffrey Stein, a King & Spalding corporate partner and a Center editor. "The goal of the Directors Governance Center is to deliver the most valuable and timely material in one place so directors can read about current topics or prepare for board meetings."

Subjects covered by the Center include strategy, risk oversight, board development, board leadership, operations, emerging issues, executive compensation and succession, litigation and investigations, stakeholder engagement and major transactions.

Other features of the Center include:

  • Access to King & Spalding's governance-related client alerts and presentations, as well as periodic reports from its Lead Director Network
  • Information about upcoming governance conferences and symposia
  • Links to other websites and resources of interest to public company directors, corporate secretaries and governance professionals

Directors can also subscribe to receive alerts when new postings are added to the Center, and a dedicated King & Spalding Twitter feed (@kslawcorpgov) will highlight timely developments in the corporate governance sphere.
