Douglas R. Eisenberg Partner

Mr. Eisenberg, Chair of the Firm's Tax Planning practice group, represents many closely held entities in a wide variety of areas with a focus on the tax aspects of the transaction.  For example, the structure of the sale of a closely held business is influenced by the tax implications which vary depending upon numerous factors.  In addition to income tax considerations there may be estate planning (federal and state tax) which comes into play. 

Mr. Eisenberg also spends a great deal of his practice interacting with the Internal Revenue Service on audits which in some cases end up in the United States Tax Court.  Finally, in addition to estate planning and administration, Mr. Eisenberg represents tax-exempt organizations in all aspects of both tax and otherwise.


Areas of Concentration

Federal and state income tax issues for various entities; structuring sales of closely-held businesses, like-kind exchanges of real estate and income tax and probate litigation.  Estate planning and administration and forming exempt organizations and foundations.  Federal and state tax audits and tax collection issues.
