Tax Law

Taxation – it was once said that those who complain about taxes can be divided into two classes of people: men and women.   The PS&E Tax Law team regularly counsels its clients on a multitude of tax-related issues facing businesses, trade organizations, municipalities, and private individuals.


The PS&E Tax Law team will work with new businesses to help them plan and structure the business from the most tax advantageous perspective.  They will assist clients that are thinking of acquiring or selling a business and provide suggestions from a tax-advantage manner utilizing tax-free reorganizations and other tax deferral or reduction techniques.  Our attorneys have also been successful raising capital using private placement security transactions.  If you have personal tax issues, our Tax Law team can guide you through the maze of the IRS to help resolve the issue.


PS&E’s Tax Law team is made up of experienced, knowledgeable and dedicated professionals who can expertly and cost-effectively assist in navigating the frequently complex matters of the Federal, State and Local tax codes.  The Tax Law team at PS&E focuses specifically in Business Tax Law, however if you have personal tax issues we can also help you get closure.  The attorneys at Pickrel, Schaefer and Ebeling work together as a team to give you the combined strength and knowledge of over 20 attorneys.
