Section 409A: What is New and Next


Created on May 23, 2017



In this program, attorneys Regina Olshan, Andrew Oringer, and Michael Segal will provide practitioners with a detailed analysis of several recent developments that have significantly changed the Section 409A landscape and will examine potential future changes that could be made to Section 409A by the Trump administration.

  • An overview of potential Section 409A changes that could be on the horizon as part of a broader overhaul of the Internal Revenue Code by the Trump administration
