Masterclass droit des sociétés 2023 - session 3 : Choosing the right company form
Building on the success of its Masterclasses, Legitech is expanding its offer to include an advanced cycle of 4 webinars: the Company Law Masterclass.
Coordinated by Alain Steichen, this cycle focuses on the essential principles, the most recent developments, but also the stumbling blocks encountered in practice, in order to offer the participants the means and advice of specialists.
To be as relevant as possible to practical situations, the sessions are interactive: concrete cases related to the topics discussed can be submitted by the participants to the speakers during the webinar.
This cycle benefits from the assistance of the best specialists in the field, professors and professionals from private practice.
SESSION 3 : CHOOSING THE RIGHT COMPANY FORM
Luxembourg offers a wide arsenal of company forms allowing economic actors to opt for the most suited one. However, navigating through the various forms and having a clear understanding of their pros and cons may reveal a challenging exercise. Furthermore, the needs and objectives of an economic endeavour evolve over time so that a corporate form that used to be perfectly adequate may appear inappropriate over time. This session will provide participants with simple guidelines to adequately choose between the multiple corporate forms available, as well as with a broad toolbox on how to ensure that a company retains a corporate form perfectly tailored to its needs throughout its existence.
