Governance of Privately-Held Corporations and Limited Liability Companies – April 20

While the bulk of law and legal commentary focuses on the issues faced by stakeholders of publicly held corporations, most businesses in America are actually privately-held. This program will examine privately-held corporations and limited liability companies, their governance and the rights and responsibilities of shareholders, members, directors and managers in those entities. We will consider questions such as: How does a Member or Manager’s fiduciary duty of care under the New Jersey Revised Uniform Limited Liability Company Act compare to the duty under the Delaware Limited Liability Company Act and under corporate law? How do the duties of care and loyalty, and the contractual obligation of good faith and fair dealing under New Jersey’s RULLCA and Delaware’s LLCA, compare with the fiduciary duties owed by shareholders in the privately-held corporation? How do they compare with the duties under New Jersey’s former LLC law? What are the rights and remedies of oppressed minority shareholders of privately-held corporations? Of oppressed minority members of LLCs? What are the key ethical issues faced by counsel of privately-held corporations and LLCs? FACULTY: MARK R.

Live, Work, and Play (No, I Don’t Mean Gambling): How Diversification is the Key to Atlantic City’s Resurgence

by: Gemini A. Nazareno, Jr.

While work on Atlantic City’s “Gateway Project” is well underway, the city’s government and partners are going into overdrive to spur economic development.[1] Currently, planning, funding, and construction is being coordinated by the Atlantic City Development Corporation, headed by President Christopher Paladino.[2] The new Stockton University campus and South Jersey Gas headquarters hope to rejuvenate the Chelsea neighborhood and demonstrate that the once-popular East Coast resort and gambling mecca is preparing for its comeback.[3] Given the headline news coverage highlighting the struggles of the poverty-stricken municipality—which is attributed to its dependency on gaming, tourism, and casino competition from neighboring states—the Gateway Project hopes to prove that diversification of its economy is the key to the aging city’s resurgence.[4] In order for the whole city to be successful and to transform, Atlantic City’s government and partners must embrace the Gateway Project’s model of diversifying and broadening its economic base to include corporate, residential, commercial/retail, healthcare, and academic offerings.[5] read more
