From One Thing to Another: Business Entity Conversions and Domestication

Thank you

Thank you for joining us today.


Choice of entity is not a one-time decision. Business entities may choose to change their legal form for many reasons – changing tax laws, new investors that require a different form of entity, or market or regulatory conditions making a different form of entity the better choice. But whenever an entity is converted from one form to another, significant tax liability and corporate or partnership law issues arise.

One important consideration is how to modify the company's underlying agreements to ensure basic economic arrangements among the owners remain intact.

This program provides a real-world guide to entity conversions.

  • Conversions among C Corps, S Corps, partnerships and LLCs
  • Strategies for minimizing tax on conversions
  • Business and organizational law considerations when converting an entity
  • Drafting issues in restating underlying company agreements
  • Practical and tax traps when engaging in an entity conversion
