Practice Areas


The firm's tax attorneys form an integral component of its larger transactional practice and work closely with colleagues in the corporate, real estate, and litigation departments to structure complex commercial transactions and provide nuanced trial support. Our experience in numerous transactional areas and specialties enables us to craft tax-efficient structures that meet the business objectives of our clients.

Our tax attorneys draft and negotiate contract provisions in primary and secondary transaction agreements and can make elections, file forms, and obtain private letter rulings on specific transactions for our clients from the Internal Revenue Service. Our clients benefit from our extensive federal and state tax expertise, ensuring exceptional legal product and responsive resolution.

Our tax attorneys have experience in a variety of tax specialties that relate to, and can affect, corporate reorganizations and recapitalizations; mergers and acquisitions; corporate separations, spin-offs and split-offs; redemptions, reverse splits and freeze outs; partnerships, limited liability companies, and other joint venture transactions; real estate purchases, sales and like-kind exchanges; statutory and non-statutory stock options; restricted property and deferred compensation arrangements; employee and independent contractor matters; intangible properties; qualified Subchapter-S subsidiaries, single member limited liability companies, and other disregarded entities; and partnership capital accounts, allocations and distributions.

This practice area is led by Barry L. McGraw. For any questions or additional information about our real estate litigation practice, please contact Barry at 404-681-3450 or
