RVL® Attorney Kevin Christopher Featured in Sustainable Brands Magazine
Rockridge Venture Law® attorney Kevin Christopher was featured in February’s Sustainable Brands Magazine. Kevin’s article “How Being a Benefit Corporation Can Legally Protect a Company’s Mission” explores benefit corporation structures and how they serve companies scaling profit + purpose business models. Essentially,
“The rise of the benefit corporation is in direct response to shareholder primacy. Under benefit corporation frameworks governed by state law, corporations that operate according to a “doing well by doing good” ethos may be shielded from a range of acquisition tactics and shareholder suits.”
More of Kevin’s article is found in Sustainable Brands Magazine and in RVL Briefs.
