This training deals with the multitude of services that a corporate secretary (who could be a lawyer, non-lawyer or board director) performs for a corporation or employer. These services, which would normally include acting as corporate secretary, drafting and review of contracts, and provision of legal advice, are collectively called “corporate housekeeping services” and may be performed for a private company or a public company.
This special program would be of special benefit to, among others, corporations, business owners, directors, and managers who may want to know how best to use the services of the corporate secretary; new lawyers who may wish to learn the best practices in corporate housekeeping; older lawyers who may want to shift to corporate practice or to broaden their knowledge of such practice; law firms and corporate law departments who may wish to provide additional training to their lawyers and paralegals; compliance officers of public corporations; and accountants, auditors, and accounting firms who may wish to expand their services so as to include the provision of corporate housekeeping services to their clients. Sample forms, resolutions, documents, contracts, and other useful reference materials will be provided.
