Lifetime Memberships May Not Be For Life if Bankruptcy Intervenes

With the proliferation of bankruptcy proceedings for country clubs, golf clubs, health clubs (see DBR Nov. 12, 2020, on You Fit Health Clubs), many “members” who were enticed into what appeared to be attractive packages for so-called lifetime memberships may be sorely dismayed when they learn that an intervening bankruptcy proceeding may wipe out their so-called lifetime membership benefits.

Shareholders clauses strengthen business, avoid litigation

As Published in Florida Trend

Partners often go into business together with the best of plans. But what happens when those plans go awry? Ideas for the business’s future may stray in different directions, partners may accuse each other of self-dealing, or one may give a spouse or family member an ownership stake — and a say in the business’s future. 50/50 disputes, selling or bequeathing of shares or ownership, minority ownership rights, and other such issues are not wholly unpredictable. Yet just like credit and debt, tax liabilities, or competition and market forces, shareholder disputes can have a material impact on the business.
