Jared Johnson Joins Offit Kurman in Philadelphia

 

Philadelphia, PA | November 4, 2019  Offit Kurman is pleased to announce today that Jared Johnson has joined the firm’s offices in Philadelphia. Mr. Johnson serves as a Principal-level attorney with the firm’s Business Law and Transactions, ERISA, International Practice, and Tax Consulting Practice Groups.

Jared Johnson provides tax representation and guidance in complex tax laws and disputes, corporate transactions, reporting, asset protection, and cross-border issues. He regularly assists in compliance with regulations such as the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code.

Mr. Johnson works alongside high net worth business owners throughout the business lifecycle, from incubation and startup through growth and dissolution. In addition to his guidance on tax issues such as ERISA and 409A matters, he provides strategic direction on planning, formation, governance, drafting, and reporting for corporations, partnerships, and joint ventures.

Drawing on his fluency in multiple languages, Mr. Johnson advises clients on matters related to cross-border transactions, helping numerous family businesses and high net worth individuals minimize their risks and tax liabilities through strategic business administration, estate planning, and legacy planning. Additionally, he has worked with many of these clients and others to establish nonprofit organizations and other tax-exempt organizations, often serving as an officer on their boards.

Mr. Johnson holds a certificate in dispute resolution from the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University School of Law, the top-ranked school of its kind. One of his specialties is finding leverage in a dispute to force a settlement. However, having practiced extensively before the IRS and DOL in examinations and Tax Court litigation, he is prepared to fervently advocate for his clients in any setting.

Mr. Johnson’s clients have included private Fortune 100 companies; Cayman Island and US banks and their clientele; project investors in oil and gas, real estate, mining, gems, and agriculture ventures; International Grammy-winning, Broadway, Hall of Fame, and platinum entertainers; professional and Olympic athletes; and federal judges and politicians.
