I am a business lawyer in Buckingham’s business practice group, with a focus on assisting entrepreneurial clients in the creation, restructuring, purchase and sale of their businesses. During such times of transition, I often help my clients with the negotiation and documentation of their relationships with other entities.

Although I have the capability to represent publicly held companies in select areas and do so, most of my clients are privately held. My extensive experience dealing with the tax issues facing privately held companies enables me to offer my clients a unique advantage. In fact, I have participated in the drafting of legislation adopted by the Ohio General Assembly concerning the taxation of owners of private companies, including the Ohio statute that created limited liability companies.

My clients deserve and demand prompt and efficient services, so I focus on exceeding my clients’ expectations for the quality and efficiency of my services, and my responsiveness to my clients’ needs.

I graduated from the Ohio State University College of Law Summa Cum Laude and have chaired the Ohio State Bar Association Taxation Committee. I teach at the University of Akron College of Law and Graduate Tax Program courses including Taxation of Partnerships, Individual Income Taxation, and Mergers & Acquisitions. In addition to federal income taxation, our firm has extensive expertise in state and local taxation and we, along with the University of Akron, host annual seminars on both federal and state and local taxation.
