Upcoming CLE webinar explores foreign qualification


IMPORTANT UPDATE: Webinar date changed to June 13, 2019

Not all business activities require qualification, but failure to do so can leave a company facing negative consequences.  

What does it mean to qualify to do business in a foreign state? What happens if a company that should qualify does not do so? What regulatory issues should be considered?

An upcoming CLE webinar will explore these and other issues, providing attendees with an opportunity to learn about best practices, the impact of qualification on their businesses, and how to best protect their clients.

The program, designed for corporate counsel, outside counsel and other legal and business professionals who deal with entity formation and qualification, will provide attendees with a better understanding of the types of corporate activities that generally don’t require qualification and those that typically do.

Presenters Lisa R. Jacobs and Keith B. Greenberg of DLA Piper will review the process of evaluating whether a business needs to qualify in another state and discuss internet and ecommerce activities that do or do not generally require qualification. They will also touch on how corporations can cure failures and terminate qualification.

The complimentary webinar brings to life Qualifying to Do Business in Another State: The CSC 50-State Guide to Qualification. This annually updated resource inlcudes case illustrations and discussion of business activities that do or do not trigger qualification requirements; insight into whether certain Internet activities require qualification; annotated qualification statutes for all 50 states and the District of Columbia; and quick-reference charts "Activities That Do Not Constitute Doing Business" and "Consequences of Transacting Business without Authority."
