Todd provides clients with strategic tax planning and solutions to state tax controversy matters, and advocates at the state and federal levels regarding state tax policy and legislative issues.
Todd returned to Sutherland in 2013 after spending five years as Vice President and General Counsel at the Council On State Taxation (COST). His work there included legislative, administrative and judicial advocacy on complex state and local tax issues for multistate corporations, including nexus, jurisdiction, discriminatory taxation and apportionment.
