Steve represents his clients in negotiations with taxing authorities and, as necessary, guides businesses through administrative proceedings or trials. Steve provides counsel with special attention to clients' business objectives, and in the past five years alone has successfully received over $200 million in tax savings on behalf of his clients. As a reflection of his specialized experience in state tax matters, on multiple occasions Steve has been selected by the Tennessee Department of Revenue to help draft major rewrites to significant portions of Tennessee's tax statutes.

Steve's clients include multi-national Fortune 500 companies with locations and business operations across the globe, as well as Tennessee-based companies with a single business location.
