Firm Again Partners with Illinois CPA Society to Provide Educational Seminars

For the third year in a row, Jenner & Block is partnering with the Illinois CPA Society (ICPAS) to present a series of engaging seminars for CPAs seeking to learn the latest trends in mergers and acquisitions, the professional services industry, ethics, and crisis management.   

This year’s series commenced on September 26 at the Mergers & Acquisition Conference, held at the UBS Tower in Chicago.  Jenner & Block Partners Mark K. Thomas participated in a panel discussing the future of the lending markets and Thaddeus J. Malik discussed "papering the M&A deal."

On October 31, Jenner & Block Managing Partner Gregory S. Gallopoulos, along with PricewaterhouseCoopers Partner-In-Charge Dennis Bartolucci, will present a Webcast entitled “Best Practices in Professional Services Firm Management.”  The webcast will address topics including industry trends, the importance of strategy and focus, factors that impact a firm’s bottom line, and how management, planning and professional vales can drive profits.

The series will conclude on November 7, when Jenner & Block Partner James P.  Fieweger will participate in the ICPAS Fraud Conference, to be held in Chicago at the Standard Club.  At the conference, which will educate financial professionals on the latest strategies for dealing with fraud, Mr. Fieweger will speak on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.  

ICPAS is one of the largest CPA Societies in the nation, providing educational programs and informational resources to its 34,000 members.  The organization also leads the Center for Corporate Financial Leadership (CCFL), a consortium of state CPA Societies across Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin, whose members will also have access to these events.
