Let’s Talk Estate Planning: U.S. Estate Considerations for Non-Citizens

Tuesday, November 15, 2022

1:00pm – 2:00pm EST

REGISTER

Are you a non-U.S. citizen working and living in the United States? Have you wondered whether you need a will, trust or other documents while here? Join Jackson Walker for a discussion about estate issues that citizens of the U.K. and other countries face when they decide to reside in the U.S., either temporarily or long-term. Learn how to create an estate plan that will not only reduce future taxes and costs but also minimize the risk of disputes between beneficiaries.

We’ll address such questions as:

  • What is estate planning and is it necessary for non-U.S. citizens?
  • Should I consider executing a U.S. will or trust, even if I only plan to be here for a limited period of time?  Does Texas require me to leave my assets in a certain way?
  • What happens if I pass away unexpectedly and I don’t have a will?
  • If I were to die in the U.S. as a non-citizen, where will my estate be administered?
  • In the event of my death, what arrangements can/should be made for my children if they are minors?
  • What if I become incapacitated while living in the U.S.?
  • Does the U.S. have an estate tax or inheritance tax at death?
  • What are the differences between estate taxation of U.S. citizens and non-citizens?
  • What are the differences between estate taxation of U.S. residents and non-residents?
  • If I plan to live in the U.S. indefinitely but remain a non-citizen, what considerations do I need to make in my estate plan?
  • Is there a way to avoid having my estate subject to U.S. estate taxes?

ESG Reporting: The Evolution and Impacts of the SEC and UK Taxonomy Regulations

Thursday, October 6, 2022

11:00am – 12:00pm EST

REGISTER

In recent years, ESG reporting has progressed from being a nice-to-have to being a regulatory must for some industries. In the US, recent proposals from the SEC have risen it up the corporate agenda, while in the UK, the taxonomy regulation sets out specific economic activities that must be met to be considered environmentally sustainable. Meanwhile, voluntary ESG assessment and reporting continues to become ever more sophisticated.

In this session, our expert panel will discuss how ESG reporting has evolved in recent years, what is driving that evolution, how the market is tackling it, and whether this activity is actually having an impact on the wider ESG agenda.


The STIR: LGBTQ+ Community and Allies Pave a Way to a More Inclusive Workplace

Thursday, September 22, 2022
11:00 am – 12:00 pm EST

REGISTER

According to the Corporate Equality Index 2022 report by the Human Rights Campaign, 67 percent of the Fortune 500 businesses offer transgender-inclusive health insurance coverage, up from 0 per cent in 2002, and over 285 of the fortune-500 ranked businesses achieved a 100 percent rating.

The data is clear: being an inclusive employer positively impacts recruitment, retention, engagement, and overall total revenue. While the push for equality originated in the United States and Europe, it has long since spilled over into the global marketplace.

Join our panel of experts as we explore these key questions:

  • How do you advance your current policies to be inclusive of your LGBTQ+ community?
  • How can multinational organizations champion the culture of inclusiveness in differing regions across the US and UK?
  • How can you build inclusive practices into your hiring process to signal your commitment to LGBTQ+ Equality?
  • How can you support employee resource groups and ally initiatives to engage with your employees in meaningful dialogue?
