There are many different issues to consider when choosing the appropriate business entity. Determining which entity form to choose depends mainly on the intended purpose of the entity (for example, to make an acquisition), the ownership of such entity (natural persons vs. holding company, or multiple owners vs. single owner), and the entity’s plans for the future (for example, to become a publicly-traded company). Choosing the right entity from the beginning will save your client time and money. This CLE will teach you the corporate law basics to make knowledgeable recommendations to your clients when choosing an entity to operate their business.
