You'll learn the differences between entity forms, advantages and disadvantages, formation processes/procedures, and best practices. Then you'll practice by drafting formation docs for a new entity.
This class starts by introducing participants to the various entity forms, their characteristics, relative advantages and disadvantages, and method of formation. Next, the class dives deeper into the actual steps and documentation needed to form each of these entity types, with a particular emphasis on Delaware.
