Understanding a Benefit Corporation or B-Corp - with Alisa Andrews, Esq. of the Law Offices of Pamela P. Little, PLLC

Wednesday, September 17th, 12:00 - 1:00 pm

A Benefit Corporation or B-Corp is a type of for-profit corporation that provides the highest standard of social and environmental transparency, accountability and corporate purpose. Status as a B-Corp mandates that directors consider society and environmental good as well as profits, in their decision making.Traditional corporations contrast with B-Corps in that their officers have a fiduciary duty to maximize shareholder wealth (period!). Standard corporate taxation generally applies to a B-Corp.

Some reasons one might register as a B-Corp include marketing purposes or protecting the founder/company's social mission.

Interested in learning more about becoming a B-Corp? Join Alisa Andrews at Hannah Grimes for a discussion on B-Corp status availability in NH and legal highlights on turning your corporation into a Benefit Corporation.
