Planning with FLPs and LLCs: Alive and Well

Thursday, November 7, 2019 • 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET

Over the past 30 years, the family limited partnership ("FLP") and its close sibling, the LLC, have been among the most popular and successful estate planning vehicles for transferring wealth. They moved from being judiciously used to being overused and back to being a less aggressively applied technique.

This briefing/webinar reviews where the law stands today and discusses whether we are on the cusp of another strong attack on the technique from the IRS.

Discussion Highlights:

  • Typical structure of family controlled LPs and LLCs
  • Theory behind valuation
  • IRS challenges and responses
  • Typical fact scenarios that lead to IRS challenges
  • Recent case law and dangers on the horizon
  • Challenges in administering and unwinding FLPs and LLCs

The 2019 Trust and Estate Planning Briefing/Webinar series addresses key topics in estate planning and trust administration and allows participants to earn important continuing education credits. Register for multiple Briefings and save. Recordings are available.

This series is an excellent business development opportunity; invite outside counsel to attend these informative programs at your location.
