Foley & Lardner LLP partner Louis Lehot has been named to the NACD Northern California Leadership Council, a group of key advisors and partners of NACD who will help shape the future of corporate governance within Northern California’s board director community.

The NACD Northern California Leadership Council will bring together leaders from various industries who are experts in the world of corporate governance. They will work together to foster and celebrate excellence in the community by sharing thought leadership with expert insights on risks facing the boardroom in the next five years.

The leadership council will release a series of reports to provide strategic insights and guidance on emerging trends and challenges in corporate governance that affect board leaders, such as geopolitics, climate/sustainability, AI, cybersecurity, and executive compensation/human capital issues. Additionally, the council will curate virtual programming, exclusive dinners, and interviews to engage the local NACD community in these pivotal conversations.

On a very short list of leading corporate lawyers in Silicon Valley and San Francisco, Lehot has handled some of the highest profile matters in the tech, health care, and clean energy spaces. Skilled at taking clients from “garage to global,” Lehot advises entrepreneurs and their management teams, investors, and financial advisors at all stages of growth, helping them achieve hyper-growth, go public, and successfully obtain optimal liquidity events. Clients routinely turn to Lehot for his domain experience in public offerings and private placements of equity, equity-linked, and debt securities, mergers, acquisitions, dispositions, spinoffs, strategic investments, and joint ventures, as well as corporate governance and securities law compliance matters.

NACD Northern California Chapter provides a forum for 2,300 NACD members to exchange knowledge and discuss leading boardroom practices. NACD’s 20-plus chapters enhance the value of NACD membership by providing directors with a local forum to address governance challenges to elevate their board’s performance.
