On November 6, 2008, Davis Malm attorneys Bill Griffin and Avi Lev served as faculty in the Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education seminar, “A Practical Guide to Organizing a Business.” While forming a new business can be one of the most exciting and creative services an attorney performs for his or her client, it is also an undertaking laden with opportunity for misstep, mistake, and failure. This program provided clear explanations and practical advice needed for attorneys to represent any new business and its owners. The program covered topics such as choice of entity, choice of jurisdiction, drafting organization documents, agreements among equity owners, and anticipating exit strategies. Bill and Avi were joined by three other business law experts from the greater Boston area to discuss the choice of business entity and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each option.
