I have more than a decade of experience in working with clients to harmonize business objectives with tax and other planning considerations.

I have counseled clients regarding US tax law pertaining to cross border business expansion, private equity transactions, estate and succession planning and related matters. 

Whether advising private equity funds, multi-national businesses, families or other clients, my focus is always on “what is the client trying to accomplish” – rather than “what legal options are available.” This approach allows clients to be confident that the tax “tail” won’t wag the business “dog.”
