NCEO Annual Employee Ownership Conference

Can an ESOP company board take into account the interests of the company’s stakeholders (employees, community, vendors, etc.) when making corporate decision? The answer is: it depends. In this presentation, we’ll look into the legal and practical aspects of taking a stakeholder-oriented approach to governance by examining a director’s fiduciary duties and how becoming a benefit corporation may (or may not) allow for stakeholder considerations. Join Stevens & Lee’s Sean Matthew as he presents at the National Center for Employee Ownership’s Annual Employee Ownership Conference in Kansas City, MO.
