Our tax partners both received their Masters in Taxation (LL.M.); one from New York University School of Law and the other from the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law. With this additional training and expertise we are capable of advising our clients on a very broad range of tax issues. We frequently structure tax advantaged transactions, render legal opinions in support of business transactions, file for ruling requests from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and represent clients before the IRS in audits, appeals and other negotiations.  Additional areas of emphasis include: mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganizations, like-kind exchanges, capital gains planning, charitable contributions, and conservation easements. Our breadth of experience allows us to add value to our clients by serving as business advisors as well as legal counsel.
