Boyd Alumnus Jeremy Cooper '08 Writes Article for April Nevada Lawyer Magazine

Jeremy Cooper is a graduate of the Boyd School of Law class of 2008.

Cooper wrote an article, "Taxation of Legal Entities: From Disregarded Entities to Electing Small Business Trusts," for the April issue of Nevada Lawyer, the State Bar of Nevada's monthly magazine.

"Many investors and business owners hold their investments, or operate their businesses, through limited liability companies (LLCs). The basic arrangement sounds simple enough; however, deciding on the legal entity to use in these situations is only part of the process of implementing a sound investment or operational structure. Once the type of entity is decided upon, specifically in the case of LLCs, investors and business owners have the ability to elect how these entities will be categorized for tax reporting purposes," he wrote in the article.

Cooper is a co-founder at Cooper Coons, Ltd., where he practices in the areas of estate planning, asset protection, and tax planning.
