Goulston & Storrs is pleased to announce that Brad Bedingfield has joined the firm’s Private Client & Trust and Tax practices in its Boston office. Most recently a Tax Law Specialist with the IRS’ Exempt Organizations Division, Brad also brings experience at an international law firm and academia to his practice at Goulston & Storrs.

Brad’s practice focuses on structuring solutions for private clients for transferring wealth to future generations, including lifetime and testamentary transfers, in a way that promotes family harmony, protects family-owned businesses, reduces the impact of transfer and inheritance tax on family legacies, and secures the family’s long-term philanthropic goals. Brad also establishes public charities and private foundations for individuals and corporations, advises on various charitable structures and transactions, and represents charities seeking tax-exempt status, private rulings or settlement of controversies before the IRS.

In addition to his diverse practice, Brad is currently Co-Chair of the Communications Committee for the Boston Bar Association’s Tax Exempt Organizations Section. He is a former Co-Chair of the Public Policy Committee for the BBA’s Trusts and Estates Section. Brad will discuss “Recent Developments at the IRS Exempt Organizations Division” at the Boston Bar Association (16 Beacon Street, Boston) on September 24, 2013 from 12:30-1:30 p.m.

“We know that our Private Clients & Trust, as well as our Tax clients, appreciate and benefit from the professional experiences that our lawyers apply to creating unique solutions to meet their complex needs,” said Douglas Husid, co-managing director at Goulston & Storrs. “Brad brings first-hand experience from his tenure with the IRS, combined with his background in the client-centric law firm setting and in the teaching environment in academia. These experiences in synergy make Brad an excellent addition to our team, and we’re pleased to welcome him to the firm.”

A member of the Massachusetts bar, Brad received his BA and MA degrees from the University of Georgia, M.S.t and D.Phil. degrees from Oxford University, and a JD from Columbia University School of Law.
