Holland & Hart LLP
Extensive experience working on tax controversies as a CPA and attorney. This experience began when I was working as a CPA handling all income tax audits for a Fortune 500 company. My controversy experience continued while in law school, when I worked with KPMG's National Tax Controversy group. During this time, I handled a wide range of controversy issues, including many complicated listed transaction issues active at the time. Since joining Baker in 2004, I have continued to handle controversy matters on behalf of Baker's clients.
Through my education and experience, I have well-developed tax planning capabilities and can advise clients on the implementation of sophisticated tax strategies. This experience dates back over fifteen years to my work in public accounting. I can tackle any issue, no matter how complex, and help clients determine the proper tax treatment. When you combine this with my controversy experience, I always have an eye toward preparing current documentation that will provide for successful defense and alleviation of penalties if an issue is audited.
