In this seminar, an experienced panel will provide a practical
introduction to LLCs. The panel will compare the LLC structure to
corporations (including S corporations), partnerships and sole
proprietorships, citing the advantages and disadvantages of each such
structure and how such advantages and disadvantages can shape one’s
choice-of-entity decision. Speakers will walk through the mechanics of
forming an LLC, including drafting the basic operating agreement.
Working from actual operating agreements, panelists will review
managerial, voting, governance and control structures (including
consents and tie-breaker arrangements), typical as well as unusual
capital structures (including preferred interests, profits interests and
multi-class interests) and buy-outs and exit strategies (including
drag-alongs and tag-alongs and buy-outs upon death). The discussion will
include the use of equity-based incentive compensation arrangements in
the context of an LLC and compare them to traditional corporate stock
option plans. Throughout its presentation the panel will highlight tax
issues and benefits that arise from the utilization of LLCs, discuss new
developments in the area of LLC law and provide real-world examples of
the use of LLCs in specific businesses and contexts.
