Investing in US Businesses by Foreign Persons - Common Business and Tax Considerations

Event Description

On-line registration is closed. To attend, email Tram Nguyen at .

Remote participation only.

This program is sponsored by the MSBA International Business Law Section.

The United States remains one of the most attractive markets for foreign direct investment in the world. At the same time, a foreign person who wishes to invest in a U.S. business has to navigate through an intricate web of state entity and business laws and comply with the most complicated tax system in the world.

This CLE intends to provide U.S. business lawyers with a general understanding of the most important business and tax considerations that are relevant in common situations involving foreign clients who invest in U.S. businesses. The goal of the CLE is to integrate these considerations into one easy-to-follow analytical framework that a business lawyer can use to identify most common traps and potential opportunities when advising foreign clients.
