Tax

Tax issues are vital in deciding the best organizational structure for a new business and in structuring business transactions. Our tax lawyers advise clients in all areas of tax law. These areas include qualifying for investment tax credits, maximizing non-taxed proceeds in mergers and acquisitions, and minimizing the total taxes to a business and its owner from ongoing operations. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in all areas of federal and state tax practice, including individual, commercial, and business planning, estate planning and administration, tax-exempt organizations, real estate and domestic relations. In addition to tax planning and the analysis of tax issues, we provide counsel and representation for taxpayers in connection with audits, administrative appeals and litigation involving federal, state and local taxes. Members of the Firm have held leadership positions in many professional associations. Two of our lawyers hold Masters of law degrees in taxation.
