The provision of corporate equity in a company is a process that is borne of the law and must be strictly structured in accordance with legal principles and contractual arrangements so as to realize the intended objectives in offering up a stake in the company. For without the appropriate consultation and coordination with knowledgeable legal counsel as to the offering of share equity in a company, there is that much more potential to give away more or less than was originally conceived.

It is with that realization that sufficient time needs to be afforded to identifying the scope of equity investment, such that the correct attributes are afforded to the company's stock - be it the return on the investment, the methodology for determining such return, the method by which the equity position may be cashed out or transferred, the situations under which the equity position must be sold - to name but a few of the considerations attendant with the issuance of of corporate equity and the investment therein.

When done correctly, equity investments are beneficial to both the investor and the company soliciting the investment. For that reason, the role of an experienced lawyer is of particular importance to the entire process. At Neufeld Legal P.C., we are committed to devising the optimal structure for equity investments and realizing the intentions for which it was conceived and is sought to be issued to the investor.
