CHICAGO (PRWEB) March 08, 2018
Looking for a bird’s eye understanding of the rudimentary principles of a complex area of law? Interested in a much needed refresher on an issue that has rapidly evolved in recent years? Short on time? This Financial Poise webinar series explores the essential building blocks of important legal concepts facing business people.
The first episode of the series, How to Start a Business, airs on March 13th at 2:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Michael Brandess of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger. He is joined by Leslee Cohen of Hershman Cohen LLC, Robert Londin of Jaspan Schlesinger LLP, and Jay Reilly of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP.
Starting a business can be an exciting time but requires careful planning to avoid foreseeable pitfalls. Careful drafting of formation documents can provide stability as the business launches and can also prevent many future issues. However, there is no one-size-fits-all entity that works for all businesses.
Be it a corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or sole proprietorship, numerous factors must be considered to ensure as the correct entity is chosen for your new company. Chief among these considerations are tax implications (pass-through vs. corporate taxation), personal liability (limited vs. unlimited), and the ability to maintain control of the business. Additionally, founders should be educated on the rules regarding capital raising, as well as what, if any, fiduciary duties they owe and to whom. This webinar provides guidance on each of these considerations.
