Marc practices tax and corporate law.

Marc’s tax practices encompasses federal, Rhode Island, and other state taxation. His broad experience includes tax planning for business transactions, tax disputes with the IRS and state tax authorities, and tax compliance assistance. Marc works with business entities of all sizes, high net-worth individuals and their trusts, as well as private foundations and public charities. Because of his experience working for two public accounting firms, Marc understands tax from the perspective of a tax preparer and works to ensure that tax reporting is consistent with the parties’ and drafters’ intent. He knows that tax return mistakes can become complex tax problems with the IRS, Rhode Island, and other states involving substantial amounts. Marc enjoys helping others understand and best navigate tax laws.
