Enhanced Corporate Governance: Avoiding Unpleasant Surprises

Enhanced Corporate Governance

Blank Rome Partner Frederick D. Lipman published Enhanced Corporate Governance: Avoiding Unpleasant Surprises (September 2019, Daniel Publishing LLC), in which he offers an in-depth discussion on the various financial disasters that happened this century to both public and nonprofit organizations—notably Theranos, General Motors, Michigan State University, Lehman Bros., and Enron.

In his book, Fred also provides proactive measures that can be taken by directors and officers to help prevent such financial disasters in the future, particularly recommending that boards and CEOs have a pro-active corporate governance strategy, understand the culture of the organization, pay attention to legitimate whistleblowers, and not over-rely on internal risk and control personnel without independent verification.

Enhanced Corporate Governance: Avoiding Unpleasant Surprises is of notable interest and relevance to venture capitalists, private equity firms, directors and officers of public, private, and nonprofit organizations (including university trustees), individual and institutional investors, accountants, and business consultants.
