Christine M. Green


Christine M. (“Chrissy”) Green counsels clients on federal, international, and state tax issues pertaining to transactions, structuring, and compliance. Chrissy frequently assists clients in business transactions by providing tax structuring options such as tax-deferred rollover structures and guidance on the tax aspects of company acquisitions and disposal. She also advises clients on incentive compensation plans in relation to business transactions.

Counseling clients on numerous federal tax compliance difficulties relating to corporate and pass-through taxation, as well as other tax topics like section 280E application in the cannabis industry, worker classification disputes, and employee retention tax credit issues make up a sizable portion of her tax practice.

She counsels non-U.S. individuals and companies on the U.S. federal and state tax consequences of establishing and conducting business in the U.S. In connection with doing so, she counsels clients on the application of US tax treaties. She advises people and businesses from Canada, Europe, India, Mexico, and other geographies on choice-of-entity tax matters when launching a business in the United States.

Chrissy also handles concerns for nonprofit organizations, such as petitions for exempt status and state charity solicitation registration and filings, and represents clients with regard to state tax difficulties, such as state income and sales and use tax obligations.
