PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education (ALI CLE) is pleased to announce this year's Estate Planning for the Family Business Owner conference. The two-day event will be held at the Dallas Marriott City Center, in Dallas, Texas, on November 3-4, 2016. Now in its 25th year, this course continues to be the premiere national CLE program designed specifically for those who represent family business owners.
This year offers new topics, speakers, and venue, making this the year to join us! Registrants will receive insightful analysis on all key aspects of the closely-held family business, from choice of entity to estate administration, plus updates on the hottest topics impacting those who handle privately-owned businesses. The faculty is drawn from across the country and is well-recognized in their areas of expertise. Some topics include:
- strategic income and employment tax issues related to the information, operation, and transition of closely held business
- business succession planning topics, including family law
- the controversial proposed regulations under Internal Revenue Code section 2704
- recent valuation cases and Tax Court cases affecting life insurance and reasonable compensation for key employees
- how to advantageously integrate charitable gift planning with estate planning
According to planning co-chair Steven B. Gorin, a partner at Thompson Coburn LLP in St. Louis, "In counseling a business owner, one needs to be aware of how income tax issues affect business structuring; how to incentivize key employees and fund buy-outs; how the business can survive an owner's divorce or transition ownership to the next generation; how to avoid estate tax; and how to manage a business' split-up. With nationally-known speakers addressing all of these issues, this program is a must for estate planners who represent family business owners."
