Corporate Formation: The Basics and Common Pitfalls
Application Deadline: February 22
Are you looking to launch your own startup or business?
Do you want to learn how to start a business?
Do you want to learn more about the differences in company structure such as LLC, S-Corps, and C-Corps?
Are you looking to reorganize your current company?
Join us for the Corporate Formation: The Basics and Common Pitfalls webinar to learn about the process and considerations for launching and structuring your startup, the very first steps that can determine the future of your business. The seminar will present:
  • Differences between the two most common choices of entity (Corporation and LLC) and the differences between the two most common choices of jurisdictions (NY and Delaware) and why most startups in NY choose one over the other;
  •  Essential documents for both entities that are often overlooked or ignored by most startups and the consequences for doing so; 
  • Case studies based on my client experiences to demonstrate the pitfalls associated with the failure to implement the proper documentation at the outset. 
The session will be delivered by Ana Galeano, Esq., a practicing attorney, and entrepreneur, and a business owner, with >27 years of corporate law experience advising businesses throughout their lifecycle on a broad spectrum of legal matters.  She has successfully formed, governed, and achieved growth - through formation of strategic alliances, joint ventures, mergers, acquisitions, dispositions, labor and employment, intellectual property protection - and raising capital through private financing, government grants, and an IPO.
