Our experienced attorneys regularly advise business entities, individuals and tax-exempt organizations on taxation questions and matters related to taxation, such as business and individual tax planning and mergers and acquisitions (both taxable and non-taxable). In addition, charitable and tax-exempt entities, estate planning, estate and gift taxation, trusts and probate are areas in which we have extensive experience. We can answer both state and federal tax questions relevant to Subchapter C and S corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, individuals, trusts, estates and tax-exempt entities.

We serve clients in state and federal tax audits and appeals as well as in tax litigation matters in state and federal court.  Individuals in need of estate planning matters also utilize our knowledge of revocable and irrevocable life insurance and charitable trusts and in probate of decedents’ estates. Other clients include a significant number of tax-exempt entities in the healthcare, religious and charitable sectors, whom we assist not only with routine questions concerning operations of tax-exempt entities, but also in preparation of applications and documentation necessary to obtain a tax-exempt determination from the Internal Revenue Service. By tapping into the firm’s expansive attorney groups, we collectively structure and document mergers, acquisitions, tax-exempt municipal bond financings and tax-deferred and non-recognition exchange transactions.
