Commercial Law Series: Tailoring Constitutions for Small Businesses

Webinar Paper | Presenter: Steve Dukeson, Principal, Dukesons Business Law Although not mandatory for New Zealand companies, constitutions are commonplace – and for small businesses are often the sole governance document. But are they crafted and drafted as well as they should be to meet the particular needs and wishes of the client? Looking at key (but perhaps not obvious) clauses to consider including in a constitution, as well as the interface with the Companies Act and with any shareholders’ agreement, this webinar will assist practitioners to design constitutions that suit small-business clients rather than trying to fit those clients into standard configurations and the risks that course may entail.
