    If you haven't updated your sick leave or paid-time-off policy, now is the time!! Join us for an hour-long information session with our knowledgeable employment attorneys, followed by cocktails and snacks, to address some of the more complicated questions that have arisen as our clients try to integrate the new rules into their existing leave policies.

    Learn the ins and outs of the new ordinances. For example, if you already provide paid sick time do you have to change the rate at which it accrues (the answer is it depends!)? Do you know whether the sick time carry-over rules change depending on whether you are covered by FMLA (hint: they do)? We want to answer all of your questions in a low-pressure, comfortable environment.

    The event is free of charge for our clients and invited guests. Please RSVP to Kate Moss by calling 312-696-1374 or emailing her at kmoss@gct.law

    The practice of law, as a whole, is changing - and so are the roles of women within the legal sector. And while it’s no secret that the legal industry is traditionally known for its resistance to change, women are excelling at adapting to these shifts. By taking on far greater leadership roles and driving change within law firms and corporate legal departments, women are shaking up the status quo in today's competitive marketplace.

    Join us in Chicago for a dynamic afternoon of networking and discussion, including a panel of highly successful law firm and in-house counsel leaders who will share their experiences and insights on taking charge and succeeding in the legal industry.

    The federal tax code is more than 2,500 pages long, and it doesn’t even cover state and local taxes that a business must deal with. Suffice it to say, this webinar will not make you an expert tax attorney. It is, rather, designed to provide you with a tour of the landscape. Topics include: the basic differences, from a tax perspective, between S-corps, C-corps, and limited liability companies (LLCs); basic tax issues when buying/selling a business; the basics of sales and use taxes; the basics of employment taxes; “estimated taxes” (which is an issue for the sole proprietor, partner, S corporation shareholder, and/or a self-employed individual); tax incentives; and the basic tax issues involved in closing a business.
