In-house general counsels, CEOs, and board committee members regularly consult with Porter Hedges about their general corporate practices, fiduciary responsibilities, and numerous other issues that can arise in the context of mergers and acquisitions, asset dispositions, employee malfeasance and takeover bids.

- Reviewing the policies and procedures underlying its Foreign Corrupt Practices Act compliance program for a publicly held energy services company
- Settlement of executive compensation arrangements associated with employment terminations by insurgent shareholders
- Advising an NASD member firm against claims of fraud and breach of fiduciary duty asserted by investors in an Internet development company
- Preparing and/or revising of shareholder rights' plans
