Description

Tax Counsel Position

At a high-level, the Tax Counsel works closely with Managing Director to directly support and advise Fortune 500 clients on diverse tax matters, with an emphasis of legislative and regulatory solutions to cutting-edge issues.

While deep familiarity with a particular tax area is important, the Tax Counsel must be broadly conversant in all major tax subspecialties (e.g., partnership, insurance, international, corporate, estate, individual, etc.), and highly capable of rapidly developing technical strength with respect to novel topics. The Tax Counsel will be a strong critical thinker, able to quickly make informed decisions based upon partial information, and adept at identifying potential issues before they arise.

Key deliverables with respect to the position include drafting legislation, research of current and past tax law, tracking and identifying emergent issues, as well as significant writing using technical language. The Tax Counsel must be a strong writer, capable of effectively communicating to diverse technical and non-technical audiences.
