My practice encompasses a wide variety of tax matters for businesses and individuals including partnership, corporate and individual taxation issues, international tax planning, entity formation, and mergers and acquisitions. I have represented clients in the real estate, entertainment, and healthcare industries. I structure transactions to optimize tax results, including tax-deferred Section 1031 real property exchanges. I draft and negotiate partnership and limited liability company operating agreements, and other contracts relating to the formation, sale, merger, acquisition, and liquidation of companies. I also handle executive compensation matters, including non-qualified deferred compensation plan and stock option plan drafting and advising. I advise tax-exempt organizations, such as hospitals and private foundations, on issues relating to foundation excise taxes, unrelated business taxable income, and executive compensation. My practice extends to federal, state, and local tax controversy matters.
