On the first episode of Law X.0, Nell Minow, former president and founder of Institutional Shareholder Services, one of the world’s largest investment advisory firms, discusses how companies like Wal-Mart can have a bigger impact on the environment than governments can.

Hosts Dori Goldstein and Meg McEvoy interview Minow, “corporate critic” and shareholder advocate, who also highlights how executive compensation packages can be a harbinger for company performance and why Facebook’s corporate leadership structure is concerning. Minow also shares advice for corporate in-house counsel on shareholder relations and how to avoid a hostile takeover.
