Tax matters touch virtually all areas of a business. As a result, the Goulston & Storrs Tax group is an integral part of the firm’s transactional team. Keeping business considerations top of mind, our tax attorneys combine the necessary legal expertise and the desirable practical experience to propose alternative structures to our clients. These strategies enhance the tax efficiency of a transaction without compromising its business objectives. We expand the breadth of our tax practice by including a financial analysis of the tax and business advice we provide through the skills of our Director of Tax Accounting, who is trained as a certified public accountant and is not an attorney.
Each of our tax professionals bring significant non-tax expertise to our clients in multiple areas of law, such as corporate, real estate, partnership, limited liability company, international, litigation and estate planning. Consequently, Goulston & Storrs tax attorneys are accustomed to involvement in drafting the transactional documents to implement the tax solutions they propose. The result is a high level of integration between their tax advice and its implementation. This is an exceedingly practical and goal-oriented approach that facilitates the negotiation and consummation of transactions.
Our team of tax professionals provide a broad range of tax and business advice in connection with matters such as business formations and transactions, real estate transactions, structuring of international transactions and operations, individual income tax planning, income tax aspects of estate planning, business succession and wealth transfers, tax-exempt organizations, affordable housing tax incentive programs, executive compensation plans and employee benefit plans (including the ERISA aspects of those plans).
