    Very informative. Diverse topics.

    These topics were really interesting, especially the ChatGPT and the musicians on tour information. It was difficult to hear audience questions when the audience member did not use a microphone. In these instances, it would be helpful to have the presenter repeat/ summarize the question before they respond. Thank you!!

McConnell Group PLLC - Austin, TX (0.75 hr | 0.75 hr ethics) Requests from on High: Keeping In-House Counsel Out of Hot Water (Replay) One of internal counsel’s many functions is to avert problems for their employers. But sometimes in keeping their client away from the fire, they risk being singed. These concerns implicate challenging attorney-client privilege issues, clarity in communicating to employees and management who they represent, educating others about how to maintain confidentiality, engaging the right counsel and consultants for the proper purposes, and knowing when to stay away from direct interaction in depositions, mediations and regulator meetings and interactions, or when to interact directly. Joel Cohen, White & Case LLP - New York, NY (0.75 hr | 0.75 hr ethics) Ethics on the Edge (Replay) Whether in-house or in private practice, technology lawyers increasingly find themselves counseling clients operating at or beyond the edge of what the law has contemplated—and sometimes with business models so “disruptive” they may even be illegal. Explore the ethics issues that come into play in such situations, through real-world examples of how experienced in-house lawyers have counseled their clients though high-risk innovation and legal uncertainty.   Christopher T.

Session 1: Key Trends in Private Company Mergers and Acquisitions - A discussion of trends in private M&A deals including key negotiating points, developments in representation and warranty insurance, the role of an investment bank and related engagement letter terms and recent Delaware caselaw. Session 2: Deal Issues and Trends in Today's Health Market - Economic uncertainty and challenging labor issues may have slowed M&A activity for certain healthcare sectors during the first part of the year, but deal-making is expected to accelerate. This panel discusses industry trends and predictions, as well as important business and regulatory issues when negotiating transactions on behalf of medical groups, hospitals, health plans, technology companies, and private equity funds from both the buyer and seller perspectives. Session 3: Part One: Corporate Transparency Act Regulations - Hear an overview of the Corporate Transparency Act and related regulations and a discussion regarding who is a reporting company, who is a beneficial owner, and what information will be required to be disclosed. Session 4: Part Two: Corporate Transparency Act Regulations and the Practical Implications - A practice-focused review on the implications of the CTA for lawyers who serve or who have served as an organizer of covered entities and what communications and safeguards practitioners can implement now to prepare themselves and their clients for the implementation of the CTA. Session 5: Texas Two-Step: What’s all the Fuss About? - The Texas Business Organizations Code permits a Texas corporation, LLC or limited partnership to merge into itself and thereby divide its assets and liabilities among itself and one or more additional new entities, but may not thereby prejudice the rights of its creditors under existing laws. Delaware permits LLC and limited partnerships (but not corporation) to effect similar divisions. Recently businesses with mass tort liability litigation have used divisive mergers to apportion their assets and liabilities so that the litigation is allocated to a surviving new entity with limited assets, filed for bankruptcy, and the plaintiffs have challenged the actions in courts with mixed results. Hear a summary of the state of play in this zone. Session 6: Structuring Acquisitions and Sales when the Target is an S Corp - Explore popular structuring methods used to acquire businesses operating as an S Corp, including a step-by-step analysis of the tax-free S Corp “F” Reorganization technique whereby a target S Corp is converted into an LLC that is acquired by the purchaser. Alternative structuring options, equity rollovers, and S Corp due diligence issues also will be discussed. Session 7: How Does the Recent NLRB Memo Affect Texas Non-Competes?  - This presentation discusses the Memorandum GC-23-08 issued on May 30th that states, “except in limited circumstances, “the proffer, maintenance and enforcement” of non-compete provisions violates the NLRA because these agreements “reasonably tend to chill employees” in their exercise of Section 7 rights”.
