Roetzel's Chicago Office Announces Leading Tax Lawyers

Roetzel is pleased to announce that five of its Chicago-based attorneys have been selected as Leading Tax Lawyers by Leading LawyersSM.  

Roetzel’s Leading Tax Lawyers are partners Avery Delott, David Hochman, Ben Roth, and Sherwin Rubinstein.

A lawyer cannot buy the distinction of being a leading lawyer. That honor must be earned. Roetzel’s Leading Tax Lawyers are a select group that was most often recommended by their peers in statewide surveys. Less than 5% of all lawyers licensed in Illinois have received the Leading Lawyers distinction.

Avery Delott - Mr. Delott focuses his practice on business transactions and tax law (i.e. tax planning, probate, and estate planning), where he has more than three decades of experience. He counsels many health care and other professionals in organizational structure, development, maintenance, mergers, acquisitions, expansion and contraction of their businesses. 

David Hochman - Mr. Hochman practices in the areas of professional and closely held entities, healthcare, employee benefits, taxation, and trust and estate planning. In his employee benefits, estate planning and taxation practice, Mr. Hochman represents business and business owners in a variety of planning and transactional issues, including deferred compensation, succession planning and representation of clients in dealing with the Internal Revenue Service.

Ben Roth - Mr. Roth concentrates his practice in estate planning, probate, asset protection planning, federal taxation and retirement benefit planning.  He has lectured on many aspects of tax planning and has written numerous articles and a book on the subject. Mr. Roth is a regular contributor to several peer and professional journals. His articles have appeared in many publications, including Journal of Taxation, The Practical Accountant, Medical Economics, American Bar Association Journals and Chapter 4 of Callaghan & Co. He previously served four years as an agent with the Internal Revenue Service in Chicago, Illinois.

Sherwin Rubinstein - Mr. Rubinstein represents health care providers and institutions in matters such as tax planning, retirement and benefits planning, joint ventures, mergers, acquisitions, valuation and sale of professional practices, general corporate practice, compensation structuring, buy-ins, buy-outs, provider contracts, entity selection and formation, equity acquisitions and formation and general representation of management service organizations.
