FREE TO MSBA MEMBERS! Congress recently enacted the Corporate Transparency Act, the most dramatic expansion of disclosure obligations of entities as to their ownership and control in two decades. Non-compliance can result in civil and criminal liability. The Act affects many of our clients.

Clients and others will be seeking advice. What advice can we give them? Kevin Shepherd, a Partner at Venable, LLP discusses this new law and its implications.
