Institute on Tax Aspects of Mergers & Acquisitions to focus on economic recovery

The New York City Bar Center for CLE and Penn State’s Center for the Study of Mergers and Acquisitions will kick off the 11th annual Institute on Tax Aspects of Mergers and Acquisitions on April 28 in New York. This year’s topic is “Latest Approaches for the Economic Recovery.”

The institute will explore current tax developments and planning opportunities relating to mergers and acquisitions. The program has been substantially redesigned from past years to provide updated and reorganized material, and contains three new introductory and advanced breakout sessions that will make the program useful to practitioners with all levels of experience. Professor Samuel C. Thompson Jr. is co-chair of the institute and director of the Center for the Study of Mergers and Acquisitions.

“This institute brings together many of finest financial and legal experts in the world who will offer new perspectives and in-depth analyses on cutting-edge practices in mergers and acquisitions law,” said Thompson. 

There will be a two-hour evening introductory session on basic tax rules for M&A, followed by a full day of panels on taxable transactions, tax-free acquisitions and spinoffs, international transactions, partnership transactions, negotiating a corporate acquisition, and ethical issues in tax practice. One hour of ethics CLE credit will be provided. For several of the sessions, attendees can choose to attend beginning or advanced discussions of the topic. The speakers will include nationally recognized corporate tax professionals and the top corporate tax official at the IRS.

This program is co-sponsored by New York City Bar and Center for the Study of Mergers and Acquisitions, Penn State Law. The two-day event will be held on April 28-29, at the New York City Bar, 42 West 44th Street, New York, N.Y.

Additional information is available online. CLE credit is available; see brochure for details.
