Top Ten Legal Lessons Learned for Private, Owner-Manager and Family Businesses

Archive Now Available!

Ken Clark, Francesco Gucciardo, Cecilia M. Moffat, Marni Pernica and Nick Torchetti

Learning from others' mistakes can be especially important when addressing common legal challenges faced by private, owner-managed and family businesses. When problems do occur for private businesses, there tends to be a deeper personal connection to the issues and an impact on the business and family. The damage from these missteps can be costly, tarnish reputations and lead to further deterioration of an otherwise thriving operation. This is true for new businesses and possibly more so for empires that have succeeded over multiple generations.

Join our panel of seasoned legal professionals as they provide insight on the best solutions for common problems faced by private businesses.

Topics include:

Business management strategies and family offices

Estate and succession planning best practices

Assessing the impact of the next generation of business owners on your business

Hindsight is 20/20 for shareholder agreements

Common intellectual property pitfalls

Often missed tax-planning opportunities and optimization strategies

The importance of proper corporate record keeping and the negative impact on your business if you don't
