MEMORANDUM OF ADVICE
A partner in the law firm for whom you work has instructed you to prepare a
memorandum of advice setting out the main differences in approach to
corporate governance in the UK and USA and, in particular, address any
attempts to strengthen the governance of large businesses. The partner
explains that your memorandum is required to enable the law firm to better
advise its corporate clients that are large multinationals. In addition, she also
requests that you offer your own suggestions for improving the efficacy of good
governance, especially in relation to matters of integrity and accountability.
