CHARLOTTE, NC – The law firm of Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP, is pleased to announce that Charlotte partner Warren Kean spoke about ‘Using the “S Corp” Election Effectively’ at the 2016 Florida Bar, Tax Section Fall Meeting. The CLE featured “Advanced Income Tax Planning for Family Businesses: The In’s and Out’s and All Abouts”. Warren’s presentation reviewed circumstances when an S corporation, including an LLC electing that classification, may be more favorable for a family business than a partnership or a C corporation (including a QSBC). An overview of tax planning considerations for a conversion to (or from) S corporation status was also included.
Warren dedicates his practice to matters relating to limited liability companies, partnerships, and other unincorporated entities and the taxation of those entities. His practice emphasizes the representation of privately-held companies, venture capital and private equity financings, strategic alliances and joint ventures, the negotiation and structuring of mergers and other transactions, and the design and implementation of equity incentive plans and agreements. He also chaired the North Carolina Bar Association’s Joint Task Force responsible for drafting the North Carolina Limited Liability Company Act (NCGS Chapter 57D, 2014). Warren received his J.D. from Louisiana State University Paul M. Herbert Law Center and his B.A. from Washington and Lee University.
