We are delighted to announce that partner Cornell Wright has been appointed to the Board of Trustees of the American College of Governance Counsel.
The American College of Governance Counsel is a professional body of acclaimed lawyers whose achievements in the area of governance are renowned.
Cornell is one of three Fellows added to the Board of Trustees, whose appointment is effective from January 2021.
“We are pleased to add Peggy, Steven and Cornell to the ranks of our Board of Trustees, and look forward to their guidance and stewardship. Their commitment to the College is greatly appreciated,” said Chair of the American College of Governance Counsel Larry W. Sonsini.
Cornell—who is a member of Torys’ Executive Committee, is also Chair of our Corporate Department and is the former co-head of the firm’s M&A Practice—focuses his practice on M&A transactions, both public and private, and other critical situations. He regularly counsels boards of directors and board committees on corporate governance matters, crisis management and shareholder engagement issues.
We wish to congratulate Cornell on his appointment.
