2022 Drafting Stockholder Agreements, Part 1

Total Credits: 1.2 MCLE, 0.0 Kansas Credit

Practice Area:
Business & Corporate



Stockholders’ agreements can make or break a closely held company. Voting control is allocated, distribution policies established, buy-sell mechanisms defined, and the relationship of the owners organized. Most of the big decisions of a closely held company are made in the stockholders’ agreement. In the context of S Corporations, these agreements take on even more importance in the form of various restrictions to ensure the corporation does not lose its pass-through status for federal income tax purposes. This program will provide you with a guide to planning and drafting the most essential provisions of stockholders’ agreements for C and S corporations.
