We are in the tenth year of the economic expansion following the "Great Recession" of 2008 and 2009. During the economic downturn the economy experienced outsized losses in the housing, manufacturing and jobs. Yet, the recovery and expansion has been restrained. While unemployment rates are very low, solid wage gains remains elusive. Inflation has been low and below the Federal Reserve's target for several years, but the Fed has begun to remove its very accommodative policy.
Mr. Strauss will look at the performance of the overall macro economy with specific attention paid to key economic sectors and indicators for the U.S. economy over the next several years.
According to the Kroll Global Fraud 2017/2018 report, 84% of US Companies suffered at least one type of fraud in the last year. This session will cover preventative steps that you can take to protect your organization.

Utilizing Counsel to Influence Changes and Impact Business Performance in Corporate Governance.
Did you know the federal and over 40 state legislatures have devised multiple tax incentives for certain Research & Development (“R&D”) expenses and activities? A majority of all credits claimed are by Fortune 500 corporations because of the lack of knowledge that such R&D incentives are widely applicable to many activities and industries. Even those that are aware of the power of R&D incentives and their wide applicability lack the expertise to appropriately identify and substantiate the claims.
BRAYN will present on the history, background, eligibility, requirements, and special issues, as well as provide case studies, of several little-known but highly lucrative R&D tax credits.Speaker(s):
