Morgan Lewis is proud to sponsor this year’s Fifth Annual Research & Development Tax Credit Symposium.

View topics, speakers, and detailed agenda >>

Thank you for your interest. This event has reached maximum capacity and registration is now CLOSED. 

This symposium focuses on the latest developments impacting the research and development tax credit under Internal Revenue Code Section 41 and best practices for claiming and documenting the research credit and defending research credit claims on audit. It is designed for corporate tax directors, tax managers, accountants, and other tax professionals who assist companies that engage in technology credit and have credit-qualifying activities and costs.

Who should attend

 Although the research credit is often thought of in connection with companies in the high-tech, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries, it is certainly not limited to those industries. Companies in a wide array of other industries can reap substantial financial benefits from the research credit when they invest in research to make lighter, stronger, cheaper, or more reliable products; design more economical and versatile internal processes; or develop new customer-interfacing or internal software programs.

Other industries benefiting from the research credit notably include:

  • Manufacturing
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Engineering
  • Software
  • Textiles
  • Construction
  • Food

We encourage all interested invitees to register early, as space is limited and we anticipate reaching capacity in both locations.

Dinner will be held the evening before each program—all registrants are invited to attend.

We anticipate providing CLE and CPE credits for this program; credit information will be provided closer to the date.
