Agricultural producers, manufacturers, partners in oil and gas ventures, and other owners of multimillion dollar corporations and partnerships rely on Scott to design sound tax and legal structures for their most sophisticated transactions.

Partnerships. Scott helps structure transactions that minimize risk, using his knowledge of rules regarding allocation of partnership income and losses.

International. By advising on international export incentives, Scott helps increase working capital for manufacturers and agricultural producers who conduct significant business overseas. He also provides guidance on investments by foreign persons in US business operations and real property.

Corporations. Scott consults on consolidated corporate structures and distributions to the shareholders for subchapter C and subchapter S corporations.

Reorganizations. For companies considering or pursuing reorganizations, mergers, or acquisitions, Scott reviews proposed agreements and facilitates negotiations, resulting in transactions that deliver significant value to stakeholders.

Estate and Succession Planning. Scott ensures family businesses transition from one generation to the next smoothly and in a tax efficient manner.

Thanks to Scott’s guidance, businesses can increase cash flow and avoid the potential negative impacts of transactions and restructurings. For example:

  • Applying complicated partnership rules to add a new equity partner, enabling reinvestment of almost $1 million of operating capital back into the rapidly growing $42-million technology company.
  • Freeing up operating cash for the foreign operations of a manufacturer by structuring foreign investment so that it was not subject to two or more levels of taxation by multiple countries.
  • Negotiating the provisions of a partnership agreement in an acquisition transaction to allow the acquired partner to retain more control and equity.

From Elkhorn, Nebraska, Scott moved to Colorado after college and worked in corporate accounting before realizing his true interest–digging into the details of the Tax Code. He returned to law school and earned his master’s in tax law before joining the firm in 2006. Today, Scott expertly guides his clients through highly complex business transactions to develop game-changing tax strategies that make room for growth.
