Effective corporate governance entails adherence to the corporate formalities mandated by the California Corporations Code, as well as compliance with relevant case law. It involves operating in accordance with the restrictions outlined in the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws. Any actions undertaken by the corporation must receive proper approval from officers, the board of directors, or majority shareholders, depending on the nature of the action. In many cases, written records are also necessary. Similar requirements exist for limited liability companies and partnerships.
