George Isaacson Named State Tax Notes Person Of The Year For 2016
Senior Partner George Isaacson has been named the 2016 Person of the Year by State Tax Notes, (See article here) citing his close and long–standing engagement in constitutional litigation in the state tax arena, and describing him as a “calm, brilliant advocate.” Brann & Isaacson congratulates George on this richly deserved recognition and honor. We are proud to share his vision of the business lawyer as one who treats each stage of each case for each client with the same dedication, professionalism, and care. As Isaacson told State Tax Notes,
When you are dealing with a state or federal district court, you’re very conscious of the fact that that’s where you’re making your record. You’re going to live with that record for the entire [life] of that case, so the intensity of your effort in terms of preparing the evidence and the arguments that go with it is not significantly different, whether you’re at the trial court level or U.S. Supreme Court level. I think if you are going to represent a client and you’re going to be dealing with a constitutional issue, which is the nature of a lot of our litigation, you need to satisfy your own standards at each level of argument.
