Equity is established by the company acquiring value. If the only value the company has is in its ability to sell stock, then the fair market value of the stock is quite easy to calculate: it's whatever you say it is. If you buy 100,000 shares of stock for $0.25 each, then the total assets of the company consists of the $25,000 that you paid to the company ...

First of all, I agree with TorstenS's answer and with phoog's comment. In general, the UK is a country where it's quite easy and cheap to incorporate making it a country you definitely should look into if you want to incorporate.

So here is what the bank is looking for: Your Board of Directors (BoD) has a meeting at some point. As part of that meeting, they (you) decide to open a bank account with XYZ Bank and pass a resolution (which is basically a "we will do this" which is voted on and passed by a vote). Now you send a representative to the bank to open the account. The bank ...

does the individual have legal recourse? Not really, as I explain below. In reaching this conclusion, I'm assuming that this question is a follow up of your previous one. Can a contract signed as an act of submission rather than consent be considered invalid? Contracts entered under duress or coercion are voidable by the coerced party. However, not ...

It would not be grounds to sue if it is not in writing. However the company may be sued for misleading statements or anything improper they did. It would be a fraud case if they claimed that they were going to offer equity but could not present a contract for administrative reasons. Keep any emails or communications where they suggested equity would be ...

does the individual have a legal case against the company? Unfortunately, no. Some details and terms you use are unclear (e.g., "phantom" equity, "manifest" core technology, and so forth), but your overall description reflects that the individual sabotaged himself by signing a contract that does not mention the promise of equity through which he was ...
