The Gatekeepers

Chapter 6 The Gatekeepers
Corporate Governance after the Financial Crisis

Stephen M. Bainbridge

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on two key corporate governance gatekeepers: namely, the auditors and the lawyers. Sarbanes–Oxley intended to rework their relationship with the board and management with two goals in mind. First, Congress wanted the gatekeepers to better serve as a source of independent information for the board. Second, Congress wanted them to be more effective monitors of the top management team.

Keywords:   corporate governance, auditors, lawyers, Sarbanes–Oxley Act
