Fred has practiced law for more than 45 years in the areas of taxation and corporate law, and often combines his skills in both areas. In tax matters, he handles both planning and dispute-resolution matters, including administrative appeals, for individuals, for-profit entities and non-profit entities. Fred regularly advises clients on the tax implications of real property transactions, including issues related to California property tax rules and 1031 exchanges. In the 1031 context, his work includes advice on swap and drop transactions, forward and reverse exchanges, and specialized planning for 1031 exchanges involving real property held through entities.

His corporate work includes taxable and tax-free mergers, acquisitions and spin-offs, as well as private placements and planning of day-to-day corporate matters and transactions. His practice also includes ownership dispute resolution in privately held companies, including tax-favored restructuring of business entities.
