I will be speaking at a continuing legal education seminar for the Delaware State Bar Association later this month, on May 22, 2012, in Wilmington, Delaware. The DSBA’s Corporation Law Section will be presenting its annual seminar, Recent Developments in Delaware Corporate and Alternative Entity Law, and I’ll be one of four speakers on a panel discussion about Corporate Law Updates via Blogs.
Francis Pileggi, of the Delaware Corporate & Commercial Litigation Blog, will be our panel moderator. The other panel members are Kevin LaCroix of The D&O Diary; Professor Christine Hurt, The Conglomerate; and Professor Brian Quinn, The M&A Law Prof. For the logistics of the Seminar, see Francis Pileggi’s summary, here.
Francis has given our panel latitude to discuss the process of blogging about corporate law developments, as well as what we have gleaned about corporate and LLC law from our blogging. From my perspective this seminar is a timely opportunity to look back and review the lessons from blogging about LLC law, since this month marks the third anniversary of LLCLawMonitor.com. I’m looking forward to a lively face-to-face discussion with bloggers that I regularly read but have never met in person.
Upcoming Event - Seminar for Washington Condominium Developers on Dissolution and Cancellation of Limited Liability Companies
Stoel Rives LLP is hosting a complimentary breakfast seminar in Seattle on Thursday, October 8, 2009, entitled “A Law Update for Condominium Developers: Practical Advice for Dissolution and Cancellation of Limited Liability Companies.” The seminar topics will include:
- The life cycle of a condominium LLC
- The recent Washington Supreme Court ruling in Chadwick Farms Owners Association v. FHC LLC
- Dissolution and cancellation of LLCs
- Limitations on liability protection afforded by an LLC
- How to “wind up” the business of the LLC
- How to avoid personal liability for the obligations of an LLC
The Chadwick Farms case was discussed in my prior blog post, here. Chadwick Farms is especially relevant to condo developers because of the project-oriented nature of the condo development business, and because of the strong Washington law on the implied warranty given to new condo buyers. The process of dissolving, winding up and cancelling a condo developer’s LLC will often present the developer with some difficult choices—this seminar will discuss the pros and cons of the alternatives.
Registration and breakfast begin at 7:30 a.m., and the presentation runs from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m. Limited space is still available, so if you're interested in attending you can see the location and other details and register here.
