Perry Featured in Corporate Secretary Article on the Walmart Ruling and Board Governance
Braden Perry was recently interviewed by Corporate Secretary regarding the Walmart v. Indiana Electrical Workers Pension Trust Fund IBEW ruling, imputing knowledge on Board of Directors. The ruling, which many believe will expand director accountability for knowledge of documents never received and cloud the attorney-client privilege, allowed institutional investors to inspect corporate documents related to Walmart’s internal investigation of suspected bribes at its Mexican operations. According to Perry, “companies should have clear policies that outline documents subject to books and records requests. There should also be clear reporting and communication lines to ensure board members have knowledge of facts for which they may be held accountable.” For more information, view the entire article at http://www.corporatesecretary.com/articles/regulation-and-legal/12781/wal-mart-court-ruling-may-create-new-risks-boards/
