Session I – Operating Agreement Retirement Provisions – Len Garza
Small businesses often give little thought to what happens when one of the owners decides to retire, but addressing these concerns at the inception of the business allows all parties to consider what may be important in the future.
Any partnership agreement or operating agreement should include a transition plan--it is critical to ensure the business retains the clients, skills, and abilities of the retiring partner. The transition plan itself is something that will be developed by the retiring partner in consultation with, and with the ultimate approval of, the managing partner or owner.
Listen as we provide best practices on the considerations every startup should address in its organizational documents regarding retirement provisions. We will discuss these and other key provisions that owners must include to avoid future conflict.
Key topics to be discussed:
What are the retirement provisions that owners should consider in their organizational documents?
Why is a transition plan so important to ensuring the retirement provisions work as expected?
When should a business include clawbacks in their retirement provisions?
Session II – Legal Ethics: An Attorney’s duty to one’s self and one’s clients – Rachel Rose
In Texas and other states, attorneys take an oath to “solemnly swear [to] support the Constitutions of the United States, and of this State; that I will honestly demean myself in the practice of law; that I will discharge my duties to my clients to the best of my ability; and, that I will conduct myself with integrity and civility in dealing and communicating with the court and all parties. So help me God.” By the mere oath that attorneys take, we are beholden to uphold the law and act in our clients’ best interests. This webinar focuses on this duty with a particular emphasis on competency in relation to technology and cybersecurity.
Key topics to be discussed:
