LAW G516: Business and Estate Planning Involving Closely Held Businesses
Spring 2020 • Section 21

Course Description

This course will address the factors that must be considered in advising the family owners and operators of a business. A case study will provide the basis for discussions throughout the semester. Each week, various aspects of the planning problems confronting the hypothetical family owners and operators will be explored and potential solutions plotted. The seminar has been designed to provide insight into the interrelationship of various areas of substantive law and the conflicting needs and agendas of the members of our hypothetical family. The substantive areas that will be examined in detail will include: form of business entity; business prerequisites; buy-sell arrangements; transfers to family members; control and operational issues; family investments outside the business; valuation of the business; and family personality dynamics.
