Intellectual Property and Tax

Strategic Tax Advisors for Organizations and Individuals

We serve as outside counsel to both public and private companies, and we represent individuals, estates, trusts and tax-exempt organizations. In this capacity we are involved in all aspects of our clients’ business, including corporate structuring, financing, growth and contraction strategies, employment matters, tax planning, real estate, licensing, commercial transactions, and estate planning for principals and senior management.

Intellectual Property Rights

We help protect intellectual property rights by helping our clients negotiate with management, consultants and other service providers to make certain that the company’s interests are protected in such important areas as trade secrets, confidentiality, inventions, non-competition and non-interference. We also assist in vendor and affiliate contract preparation, review and negotiation. In addition to our large number of financial institution clients, we represent manufacturers, retailers, distributors, medical practitioners, technology firms and restaurant chains.

IRS and U.S. Tax Court Experience

We represent clients before the Internal Revenue Service and the United States Tax Court in income, estate and gift tax matters, and we successfully litigate complex estate tax planning strategies and estate and gift tax valuations. Our tax attorneys are experienced in IRS Offers in Compromise and Voluntary Disclosure. Our real estate practice includes purchase and sale transactions, Section 1031 exchanges, landlord and tenant law, leasing and development transactions.
