Quarles Adds Experienced Business Tax Attorney Robert Browning as Partner
Milwaukee — The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP announced today that Robert Browning, a business law attorney who has advised clients on complex tax issues for almost 25 years, has joined the firm as a partner in the Business Law Practice Group.
Working with individual and corporate clients of all sizes, Browning counsels them on the full spectrum of federal, state, local and international tax matters. Issues he advises on include tax provisions in asset acquisitions, stock acquisitions, transfers of LLC membership interests and overall deal structure. His clients include emerging businesses, real estate investors and developers, municipalities and other organizations dealing with tax-exempt bond issuances, and high-net-worth individuals and families.
Browning regularly represents clients before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and state taxing authorities, and in U.S. Tax Court. Admitted in California, he will help support the needs of the firm’s growing client base in the state.
“Quarles is a great fit for me for several reasons,” said Browning. “The firm is widely respected for its track record of sustained growth, which is driven by its excellent culture and values. In addition, their top-notch people and practitioners across the country and across practices create opportunities to strengthen client relationships. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the Quarles success story.”
Named in 2019 by St. Louis Small Business Monthly as one of the “Top 100 St. Louisans to Know to Succeed in Business,” Browning received his B.A. from the University of Utah, his J.D. from Pepperdine University and his LL.M. in taxation from Georgetown University Law Center.
“Rob has a broad and deep skillset that makes him a valuable addition to our firm,” said Will Schultz, national chair of the Quarles Business Law Group. “Not only can he provide M&A and general tax advice to our corporate clients, but he also has specific experience in areas such as historic, renewable energy and low-income housing tax credits; real estate investment trusts (REIT); cross-border transactions; and tax-exempt bond issuances.”
