Wright Outlines Partnership Transactions at Upcoming Tax Seminars
April 11, 2011
St. Louis Partner Philip Wright will join a faculty of experienced practitioners from leading law firms across the country for two upcoming Practising Law Institute (PLI) seminars on tax planning for domestic and foreign partnerships, LLCs, joint ventures and other strategic alliances.
The first is set for May 10-12 in Chicago, Ill.; the second for June 15-17 in San Francisco, Calif. These seminars will trace partnership tax rules from the birth of a partnership through its operating life, with emphasis on tax issues, planning strategies and opportunities. They also will outline exit strategies and the tax planning possibilities in unwinding. Wright will speak at each on interesting partnership transactions from the past year.
Wright joins a PLI faculty that consists of both inside and outside tax counsel with experience in the transactional aspects of structuring partnerships, joint ventures and other strategic alliances, both domestic and foreign. For some of the more advanced topics, the faculty will be joined by panelists from the IRS and U.S. Treasury. Click here
