Shearman & Sterling Releases Annual Corporate Governance Surveys

Shearman & Sterling has released its annual surveys regarding governance and compensation practices at the top 100 US public companies.  The general corporate governance practices survey highlights trends in policies and practices of the top 100 US public companies relating to the composition and structure of their boards of directors, including with respect to the independence of directors, majority voting in the election of directors, board leadership and board committees.  The director compensation survey discusses trends in non-employee director compensation practices over the past decade.  The executive compensation survey focuses on how pay practices are developing in light of mandatory "say on pay" requirements and disclosure practices regarding the relationship of compensation to risk.
