CNPLaw’s corporate lawyer, Ms Hazel Ho, gave a talk to financial consultants from AIA Financial Advisers on 14 June 2019. The talk covered the use of shareholders’ agreements for business succession planning, focusing on life insurance policies and trust services to support buy-sell arrangements. Different strategies on how to address the risks associated with such arrangements were discussed, with relevant case studies given. The talk was followed by a lively Q&A session which was well received.
