The Goulston & Storrs Tax group is an integral part of the firm's transactional team. When it comes to getting a complex transaction consummated in a manner that accomplishes our client’s business objectives, our tax advisors pride themselves on being part of the solution. Members of the Tax Group have the necessary expertise and practical experience to propose alternative structures that enhance the tax efficiency of a transaction without compromising its business objectives.
The addition of our Director of Tax Accounting, who is trained as a certified public accountant and is not an attorney, expands the breadth of our tax practice to include the financial analysis of the tax and business advice we provide. Each of our tax professionals also has significant non-tax expertise in areas such as corporate law, real estate law, partnership law, limited liability company law, international law and estate planning. Consequently, Goulston & Storrs tax attorneys are generally involved in drafting transactional documents to implement the solutions that they propose. The result of this high level of integration between tax advice and its implementation is an exceedingly, practical and goal-oriented approach that facilitates the negotiation and consummation of transactions.
The members of the Tax Group work closely with the members of our Corporate, Real Estate, Private Client & Trust and Litigation Groups in serving the needs of our clients from whatever type of transaction or situation may arise. Our tax professionals, comprising highly experienced attorneys, our Director of Tax Accounting and legal assistants, provide tax and business advice in connection with 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).
