The Corporate Transparency Act affects us all.  It imposes mandatory disclosures of once confidential company information.  Failing to timely report can lead to civil and criminal penalties.  This Act affects almost all practice areas—some more than others. What you do not know can hurt you. 

Topics to be Covered: 
     • What should lawyers/law firms do about companies formed or advised prior to the effective date.  
    • What are the reporting deadlines for existing companies? 
    • What are the reporting requirements and deadlines for new companies? 
    • What are our legal obligations and what are our ethical obligations?  
    • What obligations do firms have to existing clients and what obligations do they have to former clients?  
    • How do we manage and implement these new rules across all size law firms? 
    • What are the ramifications of the CTA on the preparation of entity-level agreements (operating agreements, bylaws, limited partnership agreements, etc.) and other transactional documents?
