Aaron Pinegar concentrates his practice on U.S. federal income tax matters for a wide range of business transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, tax-free reorganizations, spin-offs, financings, restructurings and tax incentive transactions. During the course of his career, Aaron has helped clients to successfully close numerous transactions and joint ventures, from small acquisitions and dispositions for privately held businesses to multi-billion dollar transactions involving large public companies.  He has represented clients spanning a variety of industries, including real estate, healthcare, food, energy, technology, e-commerce, telecommunications, manufacturing and retail. Due to his significant tax expertise, Aaron’s clients also include transactional lawyers and law firms that engage him to act as outside tax counsel for their clients and transactions.
