Professor Robert Willens, an Adjunct Professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business and 2008’s Adjunct Professor of the Year, joined the Fellows for breakfast on June 11, 2015 for a discussion on transactions and taxes.
In addition to Professor Willens, guests included: Michael Kopko (Oscar, Feldberg '09), Lenore Petteruti (JPM Morgan Alternative Investments), Garrett Jones (Greenlight Capital, Feldberg '11), Scott Asher (PDT, Feldberg '09), Lauren McKenna (UBS, Feldberg '14), Brian Thomas (PDT, CFO), Josh Saltman (Baron Capital, Feldberg '10), Aaron Wasserman (Baron Capital), and Jason Aronson (Feldberg '16).
The group covered important tax topics including inversion, roll-ups, spin-offs, and advanced conveyance of NOLs. A primer for the event is available here.
The next Masters in Business event is already in planning with a tentative target for sometime in October 2015. Look out for our back to school drinks before then!
