Tax Expert Witness 500163

Expertise Description

I have more than 35 years of experience in taxation and accounting. The majority of my experience has been dedicated to leading the tax departments of New York Stock Exchange, publicly traded corporations with international operations that engaged in significant merger, acquisition and reorganization activities. This entailed my direct management of the tax compliance, audit, research and planning functions for a multitude of legal entities, including extensive U.S. consolidated groups. Accordingly, I have had wide-ranging, hands-on experience with corporate divestitures, consolidated tax returns, tax sharing arrangements, the securing of government rulings and the management of audits of various of types and sizes of legal entities. These audits, conducted by the IRS, state, local and foreign authorities, required my intensive management of all aspects thereof, from the initial start of the examinations through protesting the examiners' findings and on through the formal appeals process. I have drafted, negotiated and ensured compliance with merger, acquisition and divestiture purchase and sale agreements, technology agreements and tax sharing agreements at every one of the conglomerates I’ve been professionally associated with, involving both related and unrelated entities, and with respect to members of consolidated groups. I have prior experience offering consultations and deposition as a tax expert witness.
