Take care of business
The long-anticipated modernization and overhaul of Wisconsin’s business entity laws has arrived. New provisions streamline, clarify, and bring into uniformity five chapters of Wisconsin law governing limited liability companies, limited partnerships, partnerships, business corporations, and nonstock corporations. Although the changes don’t start until January 2023, early opt-in is available now. That means you’ll want to be up to speed right away so you can set your clients up for optimal success.
At Unpacking Wisconsin’s New Business Entity Law, attorneys involved in drafting the new business entity legislation will give you valuable insight on what to expect, including provisions that impact:
- Formation of entities under the new statutes (including new flexibility for articles of organization)
- Shareholder, partnership, and operating agreements
- Actual and apparent authority
- Dissociation, dissolution, and winding up
- Mergers, conversions, and other business-structure transactions
- Actions by members
- And more!
You’ll understand the pros and cons of the various choices of entity and the fiduciary duties associated with each. You’ll also learn which businesses should opt in early and which would do better remaining under the old provisions.
Wisconsin businesses are poised to benefit substantially from the uniformity the new business entity laws offer. Position your business clients to structure their organizations in the most rewarding way with help from Wisconsin’s New Business Entity Law.
