Closely Held Corporation Litigation: Trends, Traps & Trouble Avoidance CLE

Massachusetts Bar Association


Date: April 9, 2015

Time: 12:30PM - 2:30PM

Location: Boston, MA

Join the Massachusetts Bar Association for a two-hour primer on some of the major issues that arise uniquely in the world of closely held corporations. The event will be held at the Boston office of Mintz LEvin and will take place on Thursday, April 9, 2015 (4:30-6:30pm).

A panel in­cluding seasoned business litigators, Hon. Janet Sanders of the Business Litigation Session and a transactional attorney, will bring a fresh perspective on hot-button topics, including:

  • The uncertain status of Supreme Judicial Court freeze-out jurisprudence (including the 2014 Selmark decision)

  • Thorny attorney-client privilege questions

  • The quiet death of the “futility” exception to the shareholder derivative suit pre-filing demand

  • “An ounce of prevention” — how to head off disputes with careful shareholder agreements and ancillary documents
