New Business Ventures: Minimizing the Risk
Wednesday, May 26, 2021, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM, ET
Presenter: Alan S. Meek, JD

Launching a new business flows from the recognition of an opportunity in the marketplace. Seizing that opportunity requires decisiveness to capture it ahead of the competition. One of the decisions is whether to organize a new business entity. Some business owners often roll new opportunities into an existing entity. Other owners will form a new entity with every new opportunity. In either case, mistakes are common. In this webinar, Alan Meek, an attorney with Frost Brown Todd, will explain how to structure business entities that address the risks of doing business without adding additional risk exposure in the process. Mr. Meek will discuss how to segregate risk appropriately in separate entities and address proper structure and controls that are necessary to protect against a different type of risk – piercing the liability limiting veil.
Discussion Points:

  • Assessment of a new opportunity, including quality and quantity of risk
  • The role of insurance and maximizing the insurance budget
  • Structural formalities of a business entity
  • Factors associated with a pierced company veil
  • Rational controls to minimize the risk of a pierced company veil

This webinar is a Business Planning webinar included for Business Docs subscribers and offered live complimentary for Wealth Docs subscribers.
