I need someone to write me a motion/document addressed to the court. I am looking for a strong public policy argument and it should be styled in an academic manner. The document should make a very strong case for concluding that a nonredeemable judgment is not appropriate based on public policy (what the law should or should not be) . I will provide all cases relevant to DC so you won't have to do extensive legal research (we have that already). But you may still do research on jurisdictions outside of DC/MD to support your argument further. The main DC case we are supporting our legal research on is Trans-Lux Radio City Corp. v. Service Parking Corp., 54 A.2d 144 (D.C. 1947). Question - Why is it bad policy or contrary to law (or unconscionable) for the courts to allow a Nonredeemable Judgment for Possession of a Cooperative Unit for someone who has a Proprietary Lease and Occupancy Agreement (compared to an apartment with a residential lease). (Please note: The Proprietary Lease and Occupancy Agreement has provisions that allow for a Nonredeemable Judgment for Possession in the event of non-payment). A FACT Pattern and more context are attached. The legal research will be provided to whomever is selected for the job.

Develop a shareholders agreement. We are a small consulting company based in Hong Kong. The agreement should cover standard terms and should be written in a way that is clear and understandable. Knowledge of Hong Kong law is not required. Not too much legal jargon. The employees will be given 5% shares each. The shares will be non-voting shares. We will need to include a clause for what happens if they leave / want to sell the shares. Also terms for drag and tag. Rights and obligations of shareholders. I am clear about the answers to most those questions. I have a draft from a previous shareholders agreement which has a lot of the terms already. This will need to be reviewed and updated.
