The range of choices that business owners can make for privately held companies means you need to be prepared for a number of scenarios. Do you have the tools to effectively create and advise your client's company in a way that fits their needs and fully complies with the law? Our presenters use a combination of practical business smarts and legal analysis to explain how to create structures governing the relationships among shareholders, how to deal with shareholder disputes, and how to understand and represent the needs of a founding shareholder.
  • Determine the right approach to protecting the interests of a founder
  • Understand the latest tax issues affecting the structuring of a private corporation
  • Raise your awareness of how to bridge the link between family law issues and the private corporation
