Relationship: Worked together on matter
I specialize in employment law and Ed Leyden as part of his tax prac tice has developed a speciality in advising employment lawyers and client on tax issues arising in the context of employment law. I and my clients have relied on his advice. In many instances, his analysis has been critical to our achieving settlements when the parties are in disagreement about the tax implications relating to a settlement or verdict. Ed's expertise is reflected in the fact that he has served as Chair of the ABA's tax committee relating to employment law. I am well aware that many of my employment law colleagues hold him in high esteem. Beyond his expertise, Ed is very personable and makes working with him a pleasure.
