So, you have made a decision on the form of business entity, whether it is a corporation, LLC, or even a non-stock/non-profit. Like any well-oiled machine, it is not enough to set it up, now you have to keep it in working order.

This Financial Poise™ Webinar series covers internal investigations related to corporate and regulatory compliance, corporate law compliance, securities law compliance (with a focus on the Sarbanes-Oxley Act) and executive compensation as it relates to corporate and regulatory compliance. The various episodes in the series examine these topics from a company’s perspective with a focus on the impact to the company’s day-to-day and long-term operations.

The first episode of the series, "Overview of General Corporate Law Compliance," airs on January 24th at 11am CST (Register Here) and features moderator Rafael Zahralddin-Aravena of Elliott Greenleaf. He is joined by Kyle Stone of the Illinois Department of Public Health, Ted Gavin of Gavin Solomonese and John Arrastia of Genovese Joblove & Battista.

The decision on the form of business entity, whether it is a corporation, LLC, or even a non-stock/non-profit has been made. Like any well-oiled machine, it is not enough to set it up, now it has to be kept in working order. Corporate compliance is the next job at hand after forming an entity to make sure the business remains in good standing with specific state law requirements. This Financial Poise™webinar discusses how to maintain compliance with various state law requirements, including Delaware. Notice requirements and best practices on recording meetings will be reviewed, including which communications are protected by the attorney-client privilege and which ones are not. The importance of maintaining separate business and personal assets is analyzed. By-laws are analyzed, including how action is taken, whether by proxy, consents, resolutions, voter agreements, including the impact of technology on corporate action. Corporate compliance and ethics programs are discussed, including best practices; in particular, who should be a part of the reporting structure and who should not. Also discussed is whether the compliance program should be a stand-alone program or if it should be integrated into the normal business process of a company.

Future episodes in the series include Internal Investigations - 101, Securities Law Compliance and Executive Compensation and will air through Thomson Reuters/West LegalEdcenter. Each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to business owners and executives without much background in these areas. Yet, each episode is proven to be valuable to seasoned professionals. As with all Financial Poise Webinars, each episode in the series brings the listener into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. And, as with all Financial Poise Webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the episodes.
