The administration and management of a company entails a multitude of rights and obligations for the various parties involved. Whether you are a shareholder, officer or director, it is important to understand what is expected of you under the law and the various agreements to which you are bound. The professionals at Bernier Fournier can provide you with information and advice on the legal framework that creates rights, responsibilities and obligations in commercial law. They can also interpret your company’s contracts in order to support you in your legal and financial decisions.

In addition to the rules of governance and internal management resulting directly from obligations created by law or agreements, it is not uncommon for companies, regardless of their size, to also choose to adopt a governance and internal management by-law. This tool, like legislation and contracts, is used to specify the roles of the players involved in the business as well as the rules of internal governance, such as those surrounding the reimbursement of expenses, for example. If you are considering the possibility of establishing a governance and internal management by-law, it is wise to consult a lawyer. He or she will be able to ensure that the by-law is legally compliant and in line with your corporate values. Bernier Fournier’s seasoned lawyers have the experience and knowledge required in commercial law to assist you in drafting such a by-law.
