Review and Rewrite Virtually Every
Business Buy-Sell Agreement!

 (Or learn to do it yourself right the first time!)

Very often, attorneys will simply pull out a form and draft a Buy-Sell Agreement, without much experience in implementing them or a real understanding of the issues and nuances involved.

And far too often, that “boilerplate” Buy-Sell Agreement later becomes the business litigator’s dream paycheck! And often it constitutes malpractice.

Wouldn’t it be nice to know the traps of Buy-Sell Agreements, before you fall into them? And wouldn’t it be nice to have a practical checklist of the top mistakes found in Buy-Sell Agreements, so you can quickly review existing ones - - and gain the attention and trust of high net worth business owners?

Whether you’re an attorney, CPA, financial advisor or insurance agent, you now have an opportunity to listen and learn from one of the nation’s renowned estate planning attorneys, L. Paul Hood, Jr., JD, LL.M., as he shares some of his unique insights in this presentation entitled, “Is Your Buy-Sell Agreement Up to Snuff? - - Things to Remember in Buy-Sell Agreements”

During this 72-minute presentation, Paul will cover:

  • What a buy-sell agreement is, and the three types of buy-sell agreements.
  • The right and wrong types of Buy-Sell Agreements for specific situations and purposes.
  • The Fire Drill: A great and foolproof way to generate buy-sell agreement reviews and new buy-sell agreement engagements.
  • Why a bad Buy-Sell Agreement often is worse than none at all!
  • The “triggering events”- - not just death, disability or divorce - - that need to be considered and appropriately addressed.
  • How to use Paul’s killer Buy-Sell Options Grid, which clients love and possibly is the greatest and most effective practice management tool in the buy-sell arena ever devised.
  • How to choose the right response for each triggering event.
  • Why failure to review all governance documents and other important contracts before drafting or amending buy-sell agreements is malpractice per se.
  • Why and how to avoid “valuation hell” - - the right and wrong valuation methods and procedures.
  • The crisis caused by improper funding approaches or worse - - none at all!
  • Special hidden traps for S Corporations.
  • Some of the thorny ethical issues lurking around Buy-Sell Agreements.
