Anyone practicing business law in Tennessee knows that a knowledge of federal and state tax law and regulation can be critical to offering accurate and complete legal counsel. This is true whether one's practice is transactional, advisory, or advocacy-oriented. A basic proficiency in principles of taxation may seem easy to achieve, but the landscape is constantly changing. The interactions between federal and state rules are not always obvious. This complex legal environment makes business lawyering challenging.
With that in mind, this forum focuses on a number of key tax matters relevant to business law practice in Tennessee. The program features experts in business and tax law offering real-world recommendations and suggestions on areas of particular concern to business lawyers in Tennessee, including general matters related to entity choice, the taxation of LLCs, “hot topics”in entity-based transactional tax planning, Tennessee tax incentives and federal tax savings using opportunity zones. A distinctive element of the program involves a session in which a leader of the TBA Business Law Section offers a glimpse of how tax impacts his practice in any given week. The program is designed specifically for Tennessee practitioners who focus on business and tax law issues from a variety of perspectives and practice settings.
