About the Webinar

ESOPs benefit employees, sellers, and the organization's bottom line - in most companies. From time to time, mistakes with an ESOP have caused legal problems for the company, personal loss to plan fiduciaries, and damaged morale. This session will cover a variety of "anti-case studies" and discuss different ways companies can avoid problems before they arise.

You will learn:

  • What the most significant and most common legal problems to be aware of as ESOP companies are, including how to fix them
  • Preventative steps and best practices to avoid those problems from arising in the first place
