[Also available on LinkedIn.] With another Father’s Day behind us, it’s a good opportunity to consider its meaning for the countless fathers waiting abroad for their visa applications to be decided while stuck in consular processing, preventing them from coming to the U.S. and reuniting with their families. Unfortunately, this is no made-up hypothetical. In fact, […]
We have published a new video that takes another look at the ongoing publicly reported investigation into possible tax violations by the Trump Organization (and its Chief Financial Officer, Allen Weisselberg) as a hypothetical and teachable moment.
