Capital University Law School’s Sixth Annual Business and Tax Institute is shifting its focus this year from tax and estate planning to new corporate governance issues emerging out of the financial crisis, and transaction options for distressed companies trying to stay afloat in choppy economic waters. The conference topic is “The Financial Crisis: New Administration Initiatives and How Practitioners Should Advise Clients as a Result.” It will be held Friday, Oct. 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio, 275 E. Broad St., in downtown Columbus.
The morning sessions will focus on the financial crisis and the governance of private and publicly held for-profit and nonprofit corporations. Afternoon sessions will address financial transactions for distressed companies, including bankruptcy, restructuring and raising capital. Featured speakers and panelists include nationally recognized practicing attorneys, business financial advisors and academics.
Up to 7.0 continuing legal education credits are available. More information is found at the school's website.
