Studies conducted by both the American Bar Association and the United States Chamber of Commerce have concluded that approximately eighty-five percent (85%) of all corporate litigation could have been avoided had decisions been made in the boardroom with the assistance of legal counsel. These litigation exposures can be substantially reduced with counsel’s assistance in the drafting and preparing of accurate corporate minutes, the development of personnel policies and procedures, the proper implementation of state and federal mandated policies and practices, and the careful drafting of contracts.
