DCS advisors provide expert corporate governance advisory services to public and private sector clients within our key sectoral coverage areas, including infrastructure, energy & utilities, industrials, oil & gas and real estate. Many DCS affiliates are lawyers, corporate executives, bankers and financial advisors, offering decades of experience in both formulating optimal corporate governance structures and also serving on or advising various corporate and executive boards of directors. Based our vast experience in corporate governance, we can provide solid advice to either new or established companies in formulating their board structures and carrying our governance functions. We are also familiar with the corporate law and regulatory provisions impacting corporate governance within each regional that we cover. Our corporate governance advisory services are complementary to many of our other service areas, including transaction advisor services and capital fundraising services.
DCS advisors are able to provide corporate governance advisory services on a stand-alone basis on behalf of public and private sector clients or on behalf of our clients who have also mandated us to provide transaction advisory and M&A or privatization advisory services. In most cases, as corporate governance services will be only one element of a larger project delivery program, DCS will also be providing other complementary services in relation to other transaction elements. Our preference is always to provide such comprehensive advisory services and coordinate all elements of the transaction, including corporate governance advisory services on behalf of our clients.
Under any corporate governance services mandate, DCS will draw from our vast global network of veteran industry expert advisor affiliates and our relationship consultants in order to assemble the most appropriate team to match the specific needs of the transaction at hand. This will always include leadership of DCS affiliate experts who possess decades of global transactional experience related to the specific sector and transaction type. In any corporate governance services mandate, our preferred role is always to serve as the lead project/program manager. Within this role we are also able to assist in the selection and procurement (or subcontracting) and management of other advisors, including any local and international legal, commercial, management and other specialized advisors or other specialized advisors, as the specific transaction may require. To the extent that other third-party advisors are required, there are many value added advantages of allowing DCS to assist in the procurement of these advisors. First, DCS expert affiliates themselves possess many of required legal, commercial and managerial skill sets and we are best positioned to determine which additional outside third-party skill sets are required and which firms or individuals should be hired in these roles. Secondly, workout and restructuring services are a complex undertaking, requiring the management and coordination of many simultaneous workstreams. DCS advisors are experts in corporate governance issues and are ideally suited to manage and coordinate a multi-dimensional advisory team most efficiently and effectively.
