Dysart Taylor is pleased to announce of counsel Jonathan Gilmore was a video presenter at USLAW NETWORK’s first-ever virtual retreat, where he presented on the differences between Kansas and Missouri laws in the context of limited liability companies (LLCs).

As part of its 2020 conference, USLAW launched the Home Field Advantage, a video project where USLAW members share insights and boots-on-the-ground knowledge on the latest legal happenings impacting labor and employment in each state and in select global markets. The video library is only available to those who register for the free, virtual event.

In his presentation, Straddling the State Line, Gilmore outlined business and legal trends in both states that are impacting entrepreneurs. Specifically, Gilmore spoke about the Kansas/Missouri border war, where each state began offering increasingly higher tax incentives to get LLCs to switch sides of the state line. He shared updates on the truce, which now gives a company the ability to choose the state that best fits its needs, not the one with the best tax breaks.

The 10-day conference ran from Sept. 30-Oct. 9 and was designed for legal decision-makers. The retreat covers everything from upcoming legislation and emerging technologies to how COVID-19 has impacted the claims environment and how recent decisions are impacting overall policies and operations.

USLAW NETWORK is an international, invite-only organization of nearly 100 independent, defense-based law firms with more than 6,000 attorneys covering the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Dysart Taylor is the only firm in Kansas City that is a member of USLAW.
