2016 Securities and Business Law Primer: Drafting Governing Documents for LLCs

Program Features
Drafting Governing Documents for LLCs provides an opportunity to explore the common challenges and pitfalls when preparing to organize in Texas as a Limited Liability Company. How can you build your LLC to accommodate a variety of operational structures? How should you form an LLC you plan to use as financing vehicle? How do you realize promoted interests in the organization?

Get hands-on practice in addressing these sorts of real-world scenarios in guided group work, and bring your best LLC questions to have them explored and answered.

Stay for the 38th Annual Conference on Securities and Business Law for an in-depth review of fiduciary duty in all its forms and guises, from changing liabilities for securities practitioners to handling the fall-out when “it all goes wrong.”
