My favorite thing about working with is collaborating with the founders to help them realize their goals, whether that’s assisting with a financing so that they can hire new employees and grow exponentially or advising with respect to a merger transaction in which they are being acquired for a significant .
Representative Experience: My corporate tax practice focuses on taxable and tax-free mergers and acquisitions, lending and financing transactions, and bankruptcies and restructurings. I also have extensive experience in state income taxation and state sales and use taxes. My practice also includes representing clients in federal and state tax controversies. Recently, I served as tax counsel to Stackdriver, Inc. in its acquisition by Google Inc. I also assisted various clients with questions regarding the collection of sales and tax with respect to their "software as a service" or "cloud computing" products.
Favorite App: Uber
Favorite Book: I love to read, but it is hard for me to pick a favorite book. Unlike most people, I’ve yet to read any of the Harry Potter books, but one of the best books that I read in the last year was The Cuckoo’s Calling written by J.K. Rowling under a pseudonym. I always love a good mystery.
Off the Clock: My perfect summer day is spent at the beach with a good book. On a crisp fall day, I love to hike; I’ve hiked Mount Washington several times. These days, walking to the playground with my toddler substitutes for hiking most weekends. My daughter is my current passion outside of the office.
