Irwin M. Latner, a partner in the Corporate and Securities Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the October 16, 2018 Markets Insider article, "Family Office Networks and BDO To Launch Opportunity Zones Workshop Series."
"From a legal perspective, we are seeing a lot of interest from investors seeking to defer tax on realized or to-be-realized gains by rolling them into Qualified Opportunity Funds (O-Funds), and also from fund managers in building O-Fund structures that accommodate the capital infusion regime required for O-Funds, leave enough flexibility to accommodate what is expected from the O-Fund regulations when they come out, and yet reflect traditional real estate and private equity manager economics and fund terms," said Irwin M. Latner, Partner at Pepper Hamilton LLP.
Mr. Latner counsels family offices in all aspects of their business and investment platforms, and he works with emerging companies on early-stage financing and capital-raising transactions, governance structures, and employment agreements and related compensation structures. In particular, Mr. Latner has represented a number of domestic and international family offices in structuring and implementing their investment and governance platforms, developing succession planning structures, minimizing risk exposures and monitoring regulatory compliance.
