IP Law Special Collection: Business Structuring
Business failure or stagnation can often be due to the use of inappropriate business structures. This exists with "accidental" business structures. They are formed with too little planning for current or future business needs. Issues may lurk for years. But when pressures mount, these "accidental" structures tend to break up, unable to adapt or reinvent themselves, unable to cope with the stress of issues, problems and disputes. For the stakeholders the financial and personal costs can be extreme.

Collected here are 15 perspectives on business structuring. Most are inspired by our case work. The topics include - exit strategies, IP management, negotiations for becoming a stakeholder in a business, forming a collaboration, re-structuring a co-operative, employment contracts, and capital gains tax.
