Tax & Estates

Helping you reduce exposure and enhance profitability.

Most business decisions have related tax consequences, many of which can be significant. Our team of tax attorneys serves as trusted advisors to our business and individual clients in order to identify and reduce theirs of unnecessary tax exposure. This guidance is provided at the entity inception stage and on a transactional basis with the aim of enhancing client profitability. Entity formation guidance is critical to understanding the tax impacts on your business and the individual owners, whether that be an S or C corporation, limited liability company (LLC), limited liability partnership (LLP), or other entity type. By partnering with our clients to fully understand their business needs, we work with them to develop and implement tax-efficient growth strategies, up to and including mergers or acquisitions. Finally, we assist our clients with the sale or transfer of their business with an understanding and communication of the tax consequences resulting from the transaction.
