Sharing news that global law firm Morrison & Foerster, the first large law firm in the country to build a State + Local Tax practice, is expanding that practice with the addition of attorney William Gorrod in the firm’s San Francisco office.
Mr. Gorrod brings more than 10 years of experience counseling on matters pertaining to state and local income and franchise taxes, bank taxes, gross receipt taxes, unincorporated business taxes, sales and use taxes, real estate transfer taxes, and payroll taxes. He also provides counsel on multistate audit defense, administrative appeals, voluntary disclosure agreements, penalty abatements, and amnesties.
“I’m excited that our clients will have the opportunity to benefit from William’s expertise in navigating complex tax issues around the U.S. and particularly in California,” said Craig Fields, co-chair of the firm’s Tax Department and chair of the firm’s State + Local Tax practice. “His addition further deepens our talented bench of SALT attorneys.”
Mr. Gorrod, who joins MoFo as of counsel, says “MoFo’s reputation for its tax capabilities is well known in the Bay Area and throughout the rest of the country. The firm is a great fit for my practice, and I’m looking forward to joining my new colleagues in solving the most complex tax issues our clients are facing.”
