Law School for the CFO is a member-designed program to help financial executives deal with the complex legal issues they face in their roles. Many CFOs function as de facto in-house counsel and can find the role overwhelming at times.
We are fortunate to have one of the premiere law firms, Goodwin, provide an overview of the challenges CFOs face on a daily basis.
Make plans to attend Wednesday, June 13th as the team of professionals from Goodwin discuss major topics that CFOs and senior financial professionals deal with on a day-to-day basis including employment law, tax reform, and understanding contracts.
The program provides practical advice with trends/updates and real-life examples in key areas to help you limit your company’s risk. This is a great opportunity to learn straight from the experts!
Through this session, attendees will understand:
The key considerations and implications for your organization under the newly enacted tax laws within the 2018 Tax Reform.
What you need to know about employment law to educate your workforce and reduce the risk of litigation based on harassment in the workplace.
How commonly used provisions in legally binding agreements (contracts) could result in unanticipated consequences for your company.
