Duff & Phelps’ Robert Peters to Speak on Clear Law Institute’s Unclaimed Property Webinar: Mitigating Risks Arising from Tougher State Enforcement

Calendar May 10, 2018

Managing Director and Leader of Duff & Phelps’ Unclaimed Property and Tax Risk Advisory practice, Robert Peters, will present on Clear Law Institute’s webinar titled, “Unclaimed Property: Mitigating Risks Arising from Tougher State Enforcement”. 

In this practical webinar, you will receive an update on the increased enforcement efforts by the states upon corporate holders to comply with the unclaimed property statutes. These efforts include the increased use of 3rd party contingent fee contract auditors, continued aggressive interpretation of unclaimed property principles (despite some recent holder favorable court decisions), and legislative efforts in some states to expand scope of unclaimed property. You will also learn the steps companies can take to both minimize their risk in event of audit, as well as those who may be contemplating coming forward on a voluntary basis with one or more states.
