To register for this live teleseminar, please click here About the Teleseminar One of the most difficult cases for a planner is helping a client preserve family farms or ranches intact and in family control while funding often substantial tax liabilities.  Land is distinctly illiquid and clients often resist the necessity of selling off part of the property to pay taxes. But there are alternatives short of land sales to obtain liquidity, reduce taxes, and ensure continuing ...
To register for this live teleseminar replay, please click here About the Teleseminar Allocating authority to make decisions – whether with respect to daily operations or major transactions – in closely held companies is vitally important and often highly negotiated.  Investors view governance controls as the first line of defense in protecting their investments, ensuring they can veto – or force – major transactions.  Shareholders or members who are also managers want...

To register for this live teleseminar, please click here About the Teleseminar Many ethical issues arise when lawyers represent elderly clients. Foremost may be determining whether a client has the capacity to make valid and legally enforceable decisions – and if the client does not, determining who can make decisions for the client. There are also manifold conflict of interest issues, including whether direction is taken from the elderly person or the other person (often an adu...
To register for this live teleseminar replay, please click here About the Teleseminar Releasing a key employee is as risky a decision for an employer as hiring someone.  Whether the employee is leaving voluntarily or involuntarily, there can be substantial questions about compensation (including sales commissions) and benefits, protection of vital employer information (customer lists, pricing information, trade secrets) to which the departing employee had access, and compet...
To register for this live teleseminar, please click here About the Teleseminar Federal securities law has widespread application to business transactions from raising equity and debt capital to incentive compensation arrangements to mergers and acquisitions.  This complicated body of law applies equally to partnerships and LLCs as to C and S Corporations, and sometimes even to other contractual arrangements that do not easily fit under the rubric of a “security.”  Under...

To register for this live teleseminar replay, please click here About the Teleseminar Providing for the care of pets is, for some clients, their most urgent estate and trust priority.  These clients want to ensure that, after their own deaths, their pets are looked after in a safe and secure environment.  But the law is unclear in this area – there are few familiar planning patterns to follow in this area.  The challenge for the planner is to create new structures...

To register for this live teleseminar replay, please click here About the Teleseminar There is an inherent tension in law practice: While scrupulously representing current clients, attorneys and their firms must vigorously seek to develop new clients and new matters – new litigations and transactions, new planning and administration work. But attorney marketing, advertising and business development are subject to a range of ethics restrictions that other marketers are not subjec...
To register for this live teleseminar, please click here About the Teleseminar Representing parties in transactions – business, commercial, or real estate – presents a wide range of ethical issues.  Foremost may be identifying your client when an entity and its owners both want you to represent them in a deal – or managing the inherent conflict through disclosure and waivers. There are also issues when a client offers you an economic piece of a transaction that potentially ...
To register for this live teleseminar, please click here About the Teleseminar Subleasing and assignments are essential tools for tenants to move space and mitigate the (sometimes substantial) expense of unused space.  But these tools can also be the bane of landlords, who in a sense lose control of the space to subtenants with whom they are not in privity of contract. Subleases come in a variety of forms, each a delicate balance of rights, remedies and liability among the ...

To register for this live teleseminar, please click here About the Teleseminar Wage and hour law, particularly related to overtime, is undergoing a sea change.  Classifying a worker as “exempt,” and thus not entitled to overtime no matter how many hours worked in a week, has become much more difficult with the spread of non-traditional employment relationships, including the use of independent contractors, outsourcing, subcontractors, and franchisees. If an employer gets th...
