Texas is becoming an increasingly popular destination for businesses choosing to form an LLC. In this Continuing Legal Education (CLE*) credit-eligible program, we will highlight some meaningful differences between Texas and Delaware business entity law and demonstrate how practitioners must be wary of these key differences through a study of relevant statutes and cases. Join Byron F. Egan, Partner, Jackson Walker L.L.P. and author of Egan on Entities, a CSC publication, as we discuss some of the distinctive aspects of LLC laws, including certain fundamental provisions of Texas Business Organizations Code (BOC) and the Delaware Limited Liability Company Act, as well as relevant Texas and Delaware cases.
The topics to be discussed include:
- Differences in the courts structures between Texas and Delaware
- Texas and Delaware fiduciary duties, applicable cases and relevant statutes
- Dissimilarities as they apply to mergers and acquisitions
- Entity formation and implications of federal and state taxes
Attendees will leave the program with a better understanding of the meaningful differences between Texas and Delaware business entity law, with a particular focus on implications of LLC statute and case law differences. Attendees can expect to leave with a better understanding of these considerations.
*CLE is approved or in the process of approval for 60 minutes of CLE credit. The type of credit allowed will be determined by the state governing MCLE Board. CLE credit is provided by Lexis Nexis, CSC’s publications partner.
