Taft attorney Russell C. Menyhart will present “Social Enterprises and Changing Corporate Forms” at the Corporate Social Responsibility and the Modern Enterprise Symposium. The Corporate Law Center Symposium event is sponsored by the University of Cincinnati and will take place on March 18.
Menyhart, a member of Taft's Business & Finance and Litigation groups, helped garner support for passage of Indiana’s new benefit corporation legislation in a pro bono capacity. He is actively involved in promoting the growth of purpose-driven companies, social enterprises and impact investing in Indiana. He advises social entrepreneurs on how legal structures, including benefit corporations, can express and promote their values. This includes identifying the appropriate legal form for such entities, advising on expansion and financing, and assisting with B Corp certification and other third-party certifications and reports that can confirm and strengthen a social enterprise’s corporate identity and mission.
