What's So Special About Special Committees


The role of special committees in board deliberations continues to grow. Have the challenges facing special committees and their advisors changed? If so, how have special committees adapted their approaches to the issues put before them? Our panel will address these questions and share their recent experiences to reach conclusions about best practices for special committees and their advisors.

The members of this panel include:

  • Albert Garner – Vice Chair - Investment Banking at Lazard

  • Carin Barth – Board of Directors at Enterprise Products Partners L.P.

  • Lee Charles – Partner at Baker Botts

  • Moderator: Michael Swidler – Partner at Baker Botts

The third annual Baker Botts Board of Directors Forum took place on Thursday, January 16th at The Post Oak Hotel in Houston, Texas. The half day event, in a series of panel discussions and “fireside chats” led by board members, corporate professionals, advisors, and our attorneys, addressed hot topics and critical issues affecting Boards and Corporate Directors in 2020.
