Single-member disregarded entities (also referred to as pass-through entities) are widely used for business, tax, and estate planning purposes to permit flow-through treatment of income for tax purposes and limit the personal liability of the single owner or member under state law. But the treatment of these entities may vary, and practitioners need to understand their full implications – and potentially disastrous surprises – before advising clients on their use. Join nationally recognized tax lawyer and ALI member Jerald David August to examine the benefits and pitfalls of using single-member pass-through entities for a range of tax planning purposes. This newly updated presentation will also analyze the use of a defective entity in business acquisitions, in like-kind exchanges of real property, and in cross-border organizational structures and transactions.

Like communications between any client and attorney, communications between a client and tax practitioner may be covered by the attorney-client privilege. When a federal tax dispute arises, government officials often seek to obtain attorney-client communications such as letters, e-mails, and statements. To protect potentially prejudicial, confidential information, tax practitioners need a strong understanding of how attorney-client privilege and the work product doctrine apply in federal tax investigations and which communications, documents, and/or oral testimony must be produced when a subpoena is issued.

“The rule of confidentiality is critical to the modem lawyer's role, as advisor to clients probably even more than as advocate. ... The difficult problem is where to draw the boundaries – how to define the kinds of secrets that a lawyer may not keep.” - Geoffrey C. Hazard Jr., An Historical Perspective on the Attorney-Client Privilege, 66 Cal. L. Rev. 1061 (1978). One of the core duties of a lawyer is to maintain client confidences. Yet many attorneys do not fully understand when that duty starts and ends, and what information can or cannot be shared. For example: • Does the duty cover information in the public record, or the disclosure of which would not harm the client? • Must you maintain the confidentiality of an unsolicited email you receive from a prospective client? • Can you ever use a former client’s information to the disadvantage of the former client?

As a law practitioner in the 21st century, you likely have used the internet to do any or all of the following: communicate with current and prospective clients, other lawyers, and the public; conduct legal research; learn about the parties in a case; and overall enhance your legal knowledge and skills. Yet, the internet (and email and social media, in particular) is also a “virtual” minefield for ethical violations, with risks of inadvertently waiving attorney-client privilege, violating the duty of confidentiality, engaging in unlawful attorney advertising, and more. What are the common traps, and how can you keep yourself from falling in? View this essential CLE program on the ethics of email and social media so that you can learn how NOT to violate the rules of professional conduct from your office desktop or mobile device!

The purpose of a brief is very simple: convince the court that your client deserves to win. However, many brief writers lose sight of this goal by creating briefs that are badly written, poorly organized, and ineffectively themed. All too often, briefs become overly long documents filled with extraneous information, and the writers seem to forget that the intended audience is time-pressed judges (and their clerks) looking for the clear delivery of a well-reasoned argument. At its core, a brief should be a clear, concise, and compelling persuasion piece that creates a roadmap of facts that logically leads the court to the decision that you want. Both new and experienced lawyers will benefit from this 90-minute video program that will show you how to write a winning brief that is persuasive, short, and easy to follow.

Maintaining client confidences lies at the center of a lawyer’s core duties. It applies not only to what is specifically communicated by the client, but to all information relating to the representation itself. Special circumstances may arise, however, where a lawyer is allowed to share certain information about the client or the lawyer's representation of that client. Taught by Tom Spahn of McGuireWoods LLP, an experienced commercial litigator, advisor, and prolific speaker on ethics and privilege issues, this program explores the exceptions to the confidentiality rule and the circumstances in which they come about.
