Law and accounting for opportunity zones


Howard & Howard, the law firm of choice for sophisticated purchasers of legal services in business and industry, and RSM US LLP, the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, are teaming up again!  Looking at business issues from both a legal and accounting perspective has never been more relevant. Building on the success of our Law and Accounting Series offered in the fall of 2018, H&H and RSM are hosting a new series on the topics affecting our clients right now.


Join us in Las Vegas for this new session (CPE and Nevada CLE credit available):

Leveraging the big 3 in qualified opportunity zones: How to maximize deferral, forgiveness and tax-free appreciation through a qualified opportunity zone (QOZ) investment (even if your capital gains are from a “sin” business!). Learn from attorneys and accountants who have successfully established qualified opportunity funds (QOFs). These range from a $100 million offering focused on extending solar power within the 86 OZs in Oregon, a $100 million QOF to develop commercial and hospitality properties in the Southwest, and a $140 million QOF dedicated to a data center operational facility in the Midwest.

Stay tuned for upcoming events:

How much is that trade secret worth? – Identifying and analyzing damages claims is critical to effectively litigating a misappropriation of trade secrets case. We’ll cover how to analyze damages claims including the diminution in value, head start and lost profits theories of damages. You will gain an understanding of what damages are recoverable and how they are calculated.

Accidental partners – Succession planning for family and privately owned businesses is often complicated. Whether it’s due to insufficient planning, unwillingness on the part of the founding generation to hand over power, or a next generation that just feels entitled to more, succession planning for family businesses can be traumatic and destructive. Hear how to avoid business succession issues through integrated estate and business succession planning and a strong management continuity plan.
