New Business Law Webinar Premiering April 8, 2021

Leading Professionals to Teach About Business Law

Financial Poise Webinars™ announces “ESOPs – 101,” a live webinar premiering April 8th at 2:00 PM CST. This webinar is co-produced by West LegalEdCenter™ and part of the “Cross-Training for Business Lawyers” series. It will feature Chris Cahill (Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger LLP); Alan Kandel (Husch Blackwell); Darren Gleeman (MBO Ventures); Jennifer Krieger (Weaver); and Carter Smith (ButcherJoseph & Co.).

This webinar discusses the strategies, benefits and consequences to sponsoring corporations and employees implementing and using an ESOP.

Employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) are plans regulated by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and designed to allow employees to invest in the stock of their employer. The shareholder participants/employees as well as the sponsoring company generally receive tax benefits through the use of the plan. And while they are generally touted as designed to promote employees’ interest and efforts in maximizing the value of the company for the benefit of both employer and employees, ESOPs are often used as a method of corporate finance by the sponsoring company. This webinar discusses the potential strategies involving, and benefits and consequences to, the sponsoring corporation and employees in implementation and use of an ESOP. It highlights these aspects of tax-qualified ESOPs used in the United States by comparisons to other forms of employee ownership in the U.S. and abroad.
