Occasional and infrequent events pose special challenges for boards and the companies they govern. Most often encountered in ‘high value, high risk’ circumstances, these occasions often require the board to take additional measures to protect the company, its shareholders, its other constituents, and even themselves.

It discusses how a board goes about retaining the right outside professionals to conduct an investigation. And then it explains the role of the board itself in such investigations.
