LLCs Versus Corporations as Startup Structures

Quarles & Brady and Osage University Partners (OUP) Webinar

Quarles & Brady and OUP are pleased to invite you to a webinar on LLCs versus corporations as startup structures.

Join Mark Ehrmann and Jeff Fugal of Quarles & Brady LLP and Marc Singer and Beth Grafstrom of OUP for a discussion on the use of LLCs as a startup vehicle and the differences of using an LLC vs. a C Corp as the company structure.

The webinar will include a deep dive on each of the following topics:

  • Governance and structural concerns of LLCs, including organizational documents, founders’ agreements, and management provisions
  • Tax issues, including partnership provisions and conversion opportunities for LLCs
  • Investor concerns on LLCs, particularly from the venture capital lens
  • Accounting issues on tax and structure of LLCs vs. C Corporations

If you have any questions in advance that you would like for us to queue up for the panelists, please send them to Kirsten Leute at [email protected].

This webinar is open to all of OUP’s academic institution partners, Quarles & Brady LLP’s clients and network, and the broader entrepreneurial communities. The webinar will be recorded and available on YouTube within a week of the live version.
