This CLE will walk through the source of the defense's influence, the opportunities to watch for, and how tax savings can "bridge the gap" between negotiating parties.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Source of defendants' influence on plaintiff taxation
  • Opportunities to pay less by considering tax issues
  • Liability protections defendants should employ
