Len Mitchell,former Vice President of Taxes of Time, Inc.
“I have worked with the firm of Brann & Isaacson for the past 7 years in my capacity as Vice President of Taxes for a major multinational corporation. They assisted me and my company in various tax related matters including multistate nexus planning and structuring, litigation, negotiation of agreements with various states and multistate organizations (e.g., the Multistate Tax Commission) and structuring of business acquisitions and combinations. My experience has been that the professional services of Brann & Isaacson are always of the highest quality. Their expertise and knowledge in the field of state taxation is the best I know of, especially as it relates to the direct marketing industry. A very significant advantage of using Brann & Isaacson is the ability to rely on them for issues that span many or all the states, thus largely eliminating the need to manage relationships with various advisors in the various states. Another significant advantage is the expertise of Brann & Isaacson in a broad range of legal services, thus avoiding the need to go to different firms for different needs (e.g., planning, technical research, settlement structuring, litigation, etc.).”
Mark Micaliformer Vice President/Government Affairs of the Direct Marketing Association
“Having worked with Brann & Isaacson for over 15 years in my capacity as vice president of a major trade association, I can say without qualification that the firm provides an unusually high level of sophistication in terms of the many legal issues facing direct marketers. Brann & Isaacson possesses a cadre of highly-trained lawyers, who are not only good listeners to the needs of the client, but also consistently combine both technical legal analysis with practical, ‘real world’ solutions. Their knowledge in the area of state sales and use tax is nothing less than superb — quite frankly, the best I’ve come across in my career. The firm adheres to the old-fashioned qualities of hard work and high ethical standards. They are true professionals.”
