On September 23, 2008, Davis Malm attorneys Bill Griffin and Avi Lev directed the Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education seminar “Organizing, Buying & Selling Privately Owned Businesses.” The program provided a comprehensive overview of the complex and interdependent issues involved in organizing, buying and selling a privately held business. Specifically, Bill and Avi, along with other experienced faculty, offered practical advice on the business considerations, tax issues, practical problems, and ethical issues facing both lawyers and business owners. Topics included the comparison and selection of business entity; fiduciary duties of officers, directors, and owners; exit strategies; the structure of the sale; and how to avoid practical and ethical pitfalls.
