08 Feb 2023 Webinar: Chicago United States

A proposed rule announced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) this year would amount to a near-total ban on non-compete agreements with workers. The FTC asserts that the practice is often exploitative, suppresses wages, hampers innovation, and blocks entrepreneurs from starting new businesses. Businesses that rely on non-competes, on the other hand, are raising concerns about protecting their confidential and proprietary information.

Please join us for a one-hour webinar in which we’ll answer these questions:

  • What are the FTC’s next steps?
  • What will recent Supreme Court jurisprudence mean for this rulemaking?
  • Most importantly, what could this mean for your business?

15 Feb 2023 Webinar: Chicago United States

Join Mayer Brown and Economics Partners for the second of our two-part series taking an in-depth look at the current state of transfer pricing issues.

In our prior session, we focused on managing an IRS examination involving transfer pricing issues and described how careful preparation can lead to successful outcomes. But what happens when it doesn’t? Our second presentation tackles that question. We will discuss ways to avoid or resolve transfer pricing disputes. Along the way, we will deal with questions like:

  • How can I use the APA or ICAP process proactively to achieve my transfer pricing goals?
  • Is the traditional IRS Appeals forum the best path for me?
  • What about all of these other resolution mechanisms I’ve heard about, like MAP and Simultaneous Appeals? What are the pros and cons of those?
  • And what are the relative strengths of transaction and profit-based transfer pricing analyses in these processes?
