Amazing War Stories: Will Your Family be a Fatality?
Thursday, March 15, 2018 – 11:30am
UNC Asheville, Sherrill Center, Room 417
Hosted by the UNCA Family Business Forum.
Three attorneys walk into a room and tell war stories that could have been avoided in estate and succession planning. No Joke.
Enjoy lunch, be entertained, amazed, and learn how to avoid being another family business disaster. Hear from closely held businesses attorneys Richard Kort and Harris Livingstain of McGuire Wood & Bissette, among other professionals.
The closely held (or family-owned) business presents the greatest confluence of legal issues that involve the life cycle of the business. These issues range from organizational (choice of entity issues, real estate acquisition and leases, capital formation) to operational (decision-making, employment, litigation, debt collection) to sales, mergers and acquisitions and even estate planning for succession to a succeeding generation.
