Indemnification, limitation of liability, and representations and warranties provisions are the foremost clauses parties entering into a commercial agreement use to limit exposure to risk. The clarity of these clauses contained in the contract, along with the interplay between each, become critical should disputes between the contracting parties arise and the disagreement be taken to court. As counsel, it is essential you know how to negotiate, draft, and revise these clauses to avoid boilerplate or ambiguous language that can lead to costly litigation.

Although a partnership and an S corporation share many of the same characteristics, there are also distinct differences between these entities that will affect each shareholder’s tax burden, protection of personal assets, and control over policies. As counsel, you need to be well versed in the treatment of taxes and insulation of liability under each of these business structures to help your clients decide which best suits their ownership, management, and operational goals.

As Web 3.0 continues to rapidly evolve, so does its increased ability to present businesses with the opportunity to use smart contracts to conduct transparent, traceable, and irreversible transactions without the need of intermediaries. Energy, finance, insurance, health care, and supply chain management are only some of the industries incorporating blockchain-based smart contracts into their everyday transactions as hassle-free alternatives to traditional contracts. But does the technology live up to the hype? What are the latest legal implications?

Although the sale of assets is one of the most common forms of commercial transactions, it is one of the most complex. The successful sale of assets often hinges on the negotiation and drafting of a comprehensive asset purchase agreement that meets legal requirements and minimizes the likelihood of post-closing disputes and potential litigation. It is also important to understand the role of due diligence and leverage in drafting and negotiating the asset purchase agreement.

For a business to get their services or products recognized and purchased today, traditional advertising methods and channels – such as commercials or print materials – are no longer as effective. With shopping, news consumption, social connections, and television and movie viewing increasingly happening online, marketing has had to move to the internet as well in order to get in front of the consumer. The forced isolation brought on by the pandemic only added more fuel to the fire. This disruption has led to a significant shift away from celebrity endorsements and more towards the use of more “word of mouth” – through social media influencers and other content creators – to market products and services through reviews and recommendations. Using these methods, however, come with their own set of legal concerns and risks that could be easily overlooked – for both the influencers, as well as the companies that engage them. If you represent one of the parties in these arrangements, or have a client who either wants to be a paid influencer or wants to hire an influencer to help their business, this informative webcast is not to be missed.

Owners of partnership interests frequently seek to sell or withdraw from a partnership through a cross-purchase with other owners or via cash redemption. Their economic considerations consist of cash, perhaps an installment obligation plus deemed relief of partnership debt. The client’s perception of the “net-after-tax” consideration received in selling a partnership interest after negotiating a term sheet or letter of intent may prove to be inflated and, in some instances, inflated substantially with hidden tax burdens. These “hidden” incremental tax costs to the partner selling part or all of a partnership interest may be sourced to "tax traps” within the partnership provisions pertaining to allocation of debt, cash and non-cash distributions and gain/loss characterization rules.

Starting on January 1, 2024, domestic and foreign reporting companies must file reports with the U.S. Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) identifying all beneficial owners and company applicants as part of the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA). The object of the CTA is to create a database of owners of business entities in the U.S. and aboard to combat financial impropriety by organizations. Failure to comply with the new CTA reporting requirements will result in serious criminal and civil penalties.
Time is quickly running out for companies that have put off this daunting compliance undertaking. As a result, a host of domestic and foreign companies, particularly entities with complex ownership structures, will need to scramble to document what exactly constitutes a “beneficial owner” according to the guidelines and the entities to which this application applies. There are some exemptions aimed at excluding companies that are already subject to substantial state or federal regulation or are considered “large operating companies,” but companies cannot count on qualifying for one of these unclearly defined exceptions.

Ensuring a business legacy can be a complicated undertaking. Family owners often focus on operational matters while ignoring succession planning. At other times, succession planning may be mired in family strife to the detriment of operational success. In fact, inadequate business and succession planning is one of the leading causes of family business failures.
Taxes add yet another level of complexity for family businesses. Compensating owners for services, rent of owners' property, and various other arrangements can trip up business owners. Business succession plans can affect estate tax values. Deferred or uncertain estate tax liability can cause a family business to lose its line of credit, accelerate a long-term loan, or negatively affect a surety bond.
This highly rated program addresses these issues and offers practical tips for counseling clients on business succession and tax challenges. Attended by sophisticated legal practitioners and industry professionals nationwide, this annual program is a go-to resource for family businesses seeking prosperity beyond current owners or business-savvy exit solutions.
