Practice/Organization Description

I am the senior tax / business partner in an independent* boutique tax law firm in Austin, Texas, USA. My abilities are enhanced by the skills of my colleagues, who are the smartest professionals and staff on the planet (great fun to be around too!). I have been continuously Board Certified in Tax Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1994. Combining my broad tax expertise and the expertise of my colleagues, we partner with active and retired entrepreneurs and their businesses to help them grow, enjoy, and monetize their ideas and resources in the U.S. and internationally. These entrepreneurs range from ranching and oil and gas magnates, to cutting-edge technology leaders, to inventors of "low-tech" consumer products and services.

Our ideal client needs and wants seasoned tax counsel with experience in sophisticated legal, investment, and entrepreneurial matters -- rolled into one package. Our mission is to provide that service -- in a comfortable and creative setting.

A laundry list of our typical representations: Private investment; family investment and holding companies, organization and reorganization; real estate investments and development; cross-border transactions (inbound and outbound) involving real estate, services, and goods; angel and other private equity and debt funding, operations, dissolution, mergers and acquisitions, and other exits; individual and partnership taxation, legal, tax; executive and equity compensation; liquidity events and related pre- and post-planning; repatriation of foreign assets held in corporations and trusts; worker classification planning and controversy; family office organization and operations; Texas-bound migration from around the U.S. and abroad.

*Independent, in this context means that GSRP and I are world class counselors within our chosen realms, but, outside those realms, we are free to find and refer our clients like-minded and equally skilled advisors and counselors for our clients.
