Where Everybody Knows Your Name Thank you to our many volunteers for the past year, we couldn’t have done it without you! Over the past year, more than 700 lawyers, judges, legal assistants, and other professionals volunteered their time for MoBarCLE seminars. By freely offering their expertise, these volunteers helped Missouri lawyers stay current on critical changes in the ever-changing world of law. In 2009, MoBarCLE offered over 295 program events. Without the outstanding work of our volunteers, these quality seminars would not be possible. On behalf of the entire profession, The Missouri Bar, and MoBarCLE, we extend our thanks to each of you who made continuing legal education a priority this year. We appreciate your contribution of time, talent, and knowledge.

Business/Taxation Law

Fundamentals of Valuation for Medium and Small Businesses in a Troubled Economy

Workouts for LLCs/ Partnerships, Part I & II About the Program

Why You Should Attend

This program will discuss workout negotiations and documentation in the context of limited liability companies and partnerships with an emphasis on businesses with real estate investments or operations. Among other topics, the program will cover techniques for keeping the business alive while negotiating modified debt terms with lenders, eliminating any adverse tax consequences of a write-off of debt, and bankruptcy alternatives.

Small businesses are often the most difficult to value because there is little readily available data on comparables. That makes the process of valuing a business for sale or investment exceptionally difficult. This program will provide you with a practical guide to principles and methodologies of valuing medium and small businesses in the context of business transactions.

Business/Taxation Law Challenges of New Form 990 for Nonprofits

Director and Officer Liability in a Volatile Market Why You Should Attend

About the Program

As an increasing number of businesses of every size fall into default on their obligations or file for bankruptcy, there is personal risk of liability to the officers and directors of those businesses. As the business enters the “zone of insolvency,” the fiduciary duties of officers and directors become heightened. This program will discuss the fiduciary duties of officers and directors, common sources of personal financial liability, and best practices for avoiding liability.

The IRS recently issued a major revision of Form 990 used by nonprofits, the first major revision in 30 years. This program will provide a real-world guide to how the new form and its questions alter prior practice, with an emphasis on the governance issues. Among other topics, the program will cover compliance with new governance questions, issues related to donations, and areas of regulator concentration, among other topics.

Tax and Non-Tax Aspects of LLC Liquidation

When

Liquidation of limited liability companies is seemingly a simple matter of filing the appropriate document and obtaining a “taxfree” distribution of property out of the LLC to its members. However, LLC liquidations implicate an array of complex tax, financial, and operational issues. What if the LLC liquidates “hot assets,” or property that was contributed with a built-in-gain? What is the risk that a liquidating distribution will be considered a “disguised sale”? What about creditor and other third-party rights. When does cancellation of indebtedness income arise and in what amount? These and many other questions complicate the seemingly straightforward outcome of liquidating a LLC. This program will provide you a practical guide to answering these questions in a realworld transactional context. 1-888-253-6013 • www.mobarcle.org

Business/Taxation Law Compensation Issues in LLCs

Why You Should Attend When

There are many equity-based compensatory alternatives available to LLCs, each with their own tax consequences for the LLC and the recipient of the interest. In addition to unrestricted or restricted capital interests and profits interests, the LLC can issue options to acquire an interest or “virtual options” in the form of appreciation rights. There is no right choice among these alternatives. Instead, in choosing from the alternatives the LLC is essentially balancing the tax effect on existing versus prospective members, the LLC itself versus its members, and the certainty of tax outcomes versus potential tax benefits. This program will provide you with a practical guide to equity-based compensatory interests in LLCs and their financial and tax consequences.

New Ethics Requirement

Annual Two-Hour Professionalism, Ethics and Malpractice Prevention Education Requirement Replaces Three Hours Every Three Years Requirement Supreme Court Rule 15.05(f) has been amended to establish a requirement of two-hours of continuing legal education in professionalism, ethics and malpractice prevention per year rather than the previous requirement of three hours every three years. Hours in excess of the annual requirement of Rule 15.05(f) may be carried forward to the immediately succeeding reporting year, similar to the carry forward of hours to comply with the 15-hour annual requirement of Rule 15.05(a). The amendment does not change the content that satisfies the requirement as defined in Regulation 15.01.6-8. The amendment is effective for the current July 1, 2009 – June 30, 2010 reporting year. Professionalism, ethics and malpractice prevention education hours reported for the July 1, 2008 – June 30, 2009 reporting year apply to the two-hour annual requirement of Rule 15.05(f) for the July 1, 2009 – June 30, 2010 reporting year.

Requirement for New Lawyers and Lawyers Reinstated to The Missouri Bar Also Amended As amended, Rule 15.05(e) now requires lawyers admitted or reinstated to The Missouri Bar after June 30, 2009 to obtain two hours of professionalism, ethics and malpractice prevention education within 12 months of admission. Lawyers admitted or reinstated to The Missouri Bar prior to July 1, 2009 are required to obtain three hours of professionalism, ethics and malpractice prevention within 12 months of admission.

About the Programs

Trust and estate planning practice can be an ethical minefield. This program will cover common areas of ethical concern, analyze the applicable rules and discuss techniques for avoiding them. Among other areas of ethical concern are determining who your client is, multiple layers of actual and potential conflicts among benefactors, beneficiaries and fiduciaries, communications with various clients, and the potential that the planner may someday be called as a witness in fiduciary litigation.

Ethics of Asset Protection Planning

General Skipping Transfer Tax (GSTT) Planning

Why You Should Attend

About the Program

Many forms of traditional estate planning, including the use of trusts and Family Limited Partnerships, are a form of asset protection planning and raise certain ethical issues for the planner. Asset protection planning is designed to put the assets beyond the reach of creditors or other claimants. It is a legitimate form of planning but is surrounded by gray areas where valid planning can lapse into illegitimate areas where creditors are deprived of their rights through arguably fraudulent transfers. This program will provide you a practical guide to the ethical landmines in asset protection planning, including a review of the applicable rules and regulations, potential ethical, civil and criminal liability, and best practices for avoiding liability, including diligence on clients.

This program will provide you with a planning framework for the Generation Skipping Transfer Tax, including a discussion of terminology and events triggering the tax. The program will also cover generation assignment issues, taxable transfers, GST exemption planning and application of the tax to Dynasty Trusts.

Ethics and Professionalism Ethics of Client Selection

Why You Should Attend

When Friday • February 19, 2010

Engaging clients is an essential part of a stable and successful law practice — lawyers need clients. But even in a tough legal market, there are many clients a lawyer cannot engage and represent because of ethical considerations. Ethical concerns may arise from conflicts of interest or confidentiality issues. But they may also arise from practical financial concerns, such as when a lawyer or firm may become too dependent on the fees of a single or a few clients. This program will discuss these concerns as well as the rules applicable to client solicitation and the circumstances in which it becomes an ethical necessity to end a relationship with a client.

Litigation/Trial Practice Ethics in Working with and Preparing Witnesses

E-Discovery in Small Cases Why You Should Attend

About the Program

Electronic files are ubiquitous and voluminous. The production of processing of electronic evidence can be vastly expensive. Often e-discovery is discussed in the context of multi-million dollar cases. But how do you handle e-discovery in smaller commercial cases, real estate litigation or fiduciary litigation with lower dollar values? This program will provide you a practical guide to techniques for managing e-discovery in smaller cases.

Favorable testimony from expert witnesses can be an essential element of success at trial and often relies on careful preparation of the witness. But the preparation and examination of witnesses is fraught with potential ethical violations. This program will review the sources of rules applicable to working with and preparing expert witnesses and discuss practical approaches for legitimate zealous advocacy while avoiding ethical violations.
