With Bruce Bokor at the helm, the group consists of Mike Cronin, Michael Little, Pete Rivellini, Billy Spottswood and Rachel Kornreich. The group as a whole is highly regarded for not only its extensive academic achievements but its broad range of awards and distinctions including The Best Lawyers in America, Tampa Bay “Top Lawyers”, Florida Trend’s Legal Elite and more.
As one of the most diverse practices in the firm, Johnson Pope’s Business & Tax Law group represents professional individuals, closely held businesses and publicly traded corporations in matters ranging from formation of business entities such as corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships and single purpose entities, contract negotiations, executive compensation and accounting matters to venture capital financings, mergers and acquisitions and initial public offerings.
A large portion of the practice area for this group also addresses Trusts & Estates. Planning for a lifetime in today’s economic and legal climate poses dynamic and threatening challenges to those individuals and families with significant wealth. Issues such as business succession, estate and gift tax, generation skipping transfer tax, wealth preservation, charitable giving and income tax all need to be addressed and consistently reviewed in this ever-changing area of law.
Our attorneys use a wide variety of instruments and techniques that are customized for each of our clients. Our group works closely with other Johnson Pope attorneys in the real estate, labor and employment and litigation groups in a collaborative team approach to resolve client needs.
