A foundational concept behind Gilpin Givhan is the importance of providing advice to clients that considers the combined impact of business and tax laws. Our commitment to providing sophisticated business and tax advice is reflected by the fact that we have more attorneys with a Master of Laws in Taxation from leading institutions such as New York University, University of Florida and Georgetown University, than most large law firms in this state. This allows us to provide more holistic advice and adapt complex structures and strategies that are adopted by large corporations and implement them for closely-held companies in the middle market.
The business and tax planning group of Gilpin Givhan, PC, represents clients in all aspects of business organization, tax planning, mergers and acquisitions. From determining the best structure for operations, to raising capital for growth, to negotiating the acquisition of other companies, to advising on exit strategies (whether as a sale of the business, transition of ownership to family members, to winding down of operations), the members of the business and tax planning group use their unique knowledge of business and tax laws as well as backgrounds representing a wide variety of industries to position our clients to help achieve their goals.
