So, you have made a decision on the form of business entity, whether it is a corporation, LLC, or even a non-stock/non-profit. Like any well-oiled machine, it is not enough to set it up, now you have to keep it in working order. Corporate compliance is what you do after forming an entity to make sure the business remains in good standing with specific state law requirements. This webinar discusses how to maintain compliance with various state law requirements, including Delaware. Notice requirements and best practices on recording meetings will be reviewed, including which communications are protected by the attorney-client privilege and which ones are not. The importance of maintaining separate business and personal assets is analyzed. By-laws are analyzed, including how action is taken, whether by proxy, consents, resolutions, voter agreements, including the impact of technology on corporate action. Corporate compliance and ethics programs are discussed, including best practices; in particular, who should be a part of the reporting structure and who should not. Also discussed is whether the compliance program should be a stand-alone program or if it should be integrated into the normal business process of a company.
