Review Thomas Chorey

About Me

Tom Chorey is a founding shareholder of the firm and chairs the firm's transactional and business section. Tom received his law degree from the University of Virginia in 1972. Previously, he received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Virginia in Aerospace Engineering. He also obtained a Masters in Taxation from Emory University while he was practicing full time. Tom started practicing in 1973 at Troutman, Sanders, Lockerman and Ashmore. In 1979, he joined with John Taylor, and, shortly thereafter, Otto Feil, to form the firm that is now Chorey, Taylor & Feil.


 


Tom's practice and driving goals revolve around facilitating the growth and success of his clients' businesses. With over 30 years of experience, he knows how to make business transactions come together for clients. Tom often starts representing clients by assisting in the structuring and formation of their business, helping them choose the proper business entity to maximize liability protections and tax-efficiency. As clients become more established and successful, he assists in their day-to-day transactional planning, such as raising capital through debt placement or the sale of securities, structuring and documenting executive employment and restrictive covenant arrangements (including tax-driven incentive compensation plans), and negotiating and documenting commercial contracts. He also assists with mergers and acquisitions and structuring and implementing exit and succession plans.


 


With his Masters in Taxation and a strong focus on tax planning, Tom adds value not only in structuring commercial transactions to minimize tax burdens, but also through a thorough and well-grounded understanding of individual wealth management and estate planning.
