Venue: Presidents Room / Minnesota State Bar Association  Minneapolis, MN United States  Get Directions

Registration and lunch will begin at 11:30 a.m. The program will begin at 12 noon.

A business lawyer's failure to properly incorporate U.S. international tax issues into his legal analysis of a business transaction may significantly raise his client's tax burden in the United States and even expose the client to draconian IRS international tax penalties.  The probability of a malpractice lawsuit against the business lawyer increases dramatically in such situations.

This CLE is intended to provide a plain-language overview of the top five international tax mistakes that business lawyers make and offer guidance on how to avoid making these mistakes. The idea is not to simply offer a checklist, but to supply business lawyers with a conceptual approach that will minimize the probability of making costly international tax mistakes in the future.
