We are pleased to announce that Jack Trachtenberg, the former New York State Department of Taxation and Finance Deputy Commissioner and Taxpayer Rights Advocate, has joined our State and Local Tax (SALT) Practice as Counsel in New York. Jack has more than 10 years of experience advising clients and taxpayers on New York State, New York City and multistate tax matters. Prior to serving as the Taxpayer Rights Advocate, Jack practiced at a New York law firm, counseling clients on all aspects of state and local taxation. Jack has litigated cases before the New York State Division of Tax Appeals, the New York State Tax Appeals Tribunal and the New York State Supreme Court. He is also an adjunct professor at Albany Law School, where he teaches a course on state and local tax.

Jack’s arrival comes just weeks after we announced that Carley Roberts and Prentiss Willson, nationally recognized leaders in California and multistate tax matters, joined Sutherland SALT in Sacramento.
