Employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) are plans regulated by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and designed to allow employees invest in the stock of their employer. The shareholder participants/employees as well as the sponsoring company generally receive tax benefits through the use of the plan. And while they are generally touted as designed to promote employees’ interest and efforts in maximizing the value of the company for the benefit both employer and employees, ESOPs are often used as a method of corporate finance by the sponsoring company.

The CROSS-TRAINING FOR BUSINESS LAWYERS Series is produced by Financial Poise™. The final episode of the series is “Immigration-101,” airing on May 15th at 1:00 PM CST. All episodes will be available live through West LegalEdCenter and then on-demand following the live premiere.
