All of our tax attorneys who practice in the field of tax law have obtained a Masters of Laws in Taxation (LL.M.) degree from New York University School of Law, universally respected as the preeminent tax program in the world.


Our tax lawyers regularly advise clients on the tax aspects of all types of businesses.  We routinely render tax counsel regarding entity formation, corporate and pass-through taxation, including Subchapter S corporations, corporate reorganizations, acquisitions, spin-offs and other dispositions, joint ventures, financings and restructurings.  These tax considerations can often determine the form, structure and feasibility of the contemplated transactions.  

Our team of tax lawyers work with clients in a wide range of industries including e-commerce, social and digital media, biotechnology and medical technology and devices, retail and consumer packaged goods, mobile applications, software and interpretative data, food technology and power generation.  

Our taxation lawyers also work with attorneys in other practice areas of Smith Hurst. Our corporate tax attorneys collaborate within all stages of business to provide sophisticated solutions to tax issues in every stage of a client’s business.
