Corporate Legal Questions and Answers

Corporate

Shareholders Agreement

Kansas

Asked on Jun 2, 2023

Shareholders agreement and indemnification?

I am a founder of a startup business and I recently entered into a Shareholders Agreement with my business partners. I am looking to understand how the agreement handles indemnification for the shareholders. I am seeking clarity on the extent of liability that I may be held responsible for as a shareholder.

Ben P.

Answered Jun 13, 2023

The answer to your question will largely depend on the specific terms of the Shareholders Agreement, and whether the claims, and potential liability, come from a third party, the corporation itself, or your fellow shareholders. It might also depend on any other role(s) you have with the corporation as a director, officer, employee, and/or agent. A Kansas statute (K.S.A. 17-6305) provides specific parameters regarding a corporation's basic indemnity obligations for its directors, officers, employees, or agents. However, a shareholders agreement, the articles of incorporation, and/or bylaws might provide for more details regarding an indemnification review and approval process, the advancement of fees, or other requirements or protections. Related to indemnification by the corporation itself, the existence and extent of any insurance coverage for directors and officers liability (a D&O policy) could be a vital consideration in certain situations. You should consult with an experienced attorney regarding the specific terms of your Shareholders Agreement, any other relevant corporate documents, and the particular concerns you might have to make sure you fully understand the extent of any protection provided, and whether there are any uncertain areas or issues that need to be addressed.

Letter of Intent

Texas

Asked on Oct 6, 2022

Can a buyer back out of a purchase agreement?

I am trying to sell my company and the buyer has gone silent. We have top terms agreed to and a LOI signed, but we have not put a purchase agreement in place yet. Can they legally back out if we have a LOI signed?

Michael S.

Answered Oct 18, 2022

With the caveat that I am a Pennsylvania and not Texas attorney, most LOI's are non-binding, unless the LOI itself provides otherwise. A lawyer would need to review the LOI to determine whether the deal can be enforced. Mostly likely, however, it cannot be enforced.

Asset Purchase Agreement

Texas

Asked on Oct 4, 2022

Should asset purchase agreement be notarized?

Do we need to notarize an APA? I have tried to do research online and cannot find anything. I am trying to budget for a new acquisition and want to make sure I have all of my ducks in a row. Are there any other documents I will need?

CRAIG C.

Answered Nov 8, 2022

There is absolutely NO requirement that an asset purchase agreement be notarized. However, there is no harm to having it notarized.

LLC

California

Asked on Oct 29, 2023

How is management structure set post-formation?

I am in the process of forming a Limited Liability Company (LLC) and I am looking to understand how the management structure will be set up post-formation. I have a business partner who will be a co-owner of the LLC and I am interested in learning the best way to ensure that both of our interests are represented in the management structure. Furthermore, I am interested in learning what type of documentation will be needed to ensure that our management structure is properly set up and in compliance with applicable laws.

Sarah S.

Answered Nov 3, 2023

When forming a Limited Liability Company (LLC) with a business partner, it's crucial to establish a clear and effective management structure to represent both of your interests. To do so, you should create an Operating Agreement, a customizable document that outlines the management structure, ownership percentages, and roles and responsibilities of each member. You can choose between a member-managed or manager-managed LLC, depending on your and your partner's roles and preferences. Defining ownership percentages, management responsibilities, voting rights, meeting procedures, and compliance with state laws is essential. Legal counsel should be consulted to draft the Operating Agreement and ensure compliance with specific state regulations, and it's important to regularly review and update the document to adapt to changes as your business evolves.

S Corp

Texas

Asked on Aug 6, 2023

Can an S corp be digital?

I am an entrepreneur who is exploring different business entities to use for my new venture. I have heard that an S corp can be a beneficial option, but I am unsure if a digital S corp is possible. I have been researching online, but I am not sure what the legal requirements and implications would be for creating a digital S corp.

Michael R.

Answered Sep 19, 2023

There is no such thing as a digital S corporation. An S corporation is simply a corporation which makes an election to be taxed as a partnership.
