Megan is an attorney in Ulmer’s Venture Law Practice Group, with a special focus on tax and corporate law. Megan works with companies at all stages, and is able to guide founders through the tax issues that arise at each stage with a forward-looking approach toward planning and growth. Megan takes an energetic and business-oriented approach to her practice, with the client’s goals, priorities, and concerns at the forefront of every transaction and project. She counsels entrepreneurs through forming and launching a business, adding employees and granting incentive equity and taking advantage of federal, state, and local tax incentives during the growth stage, to exiting that business in a way that optimizes the founder’s return.
Megan also represents investors and investment funds. Megan’s first job out of law school was at a boutique tax firm advising and structuring complex tax-deferred investments made through Section 1031 like-kind exchanges, Qualified Opportunity Zones, and Section 1042 sales of stock to employee stock ownership plans. This background gives her the skills to assist investors in analyzing venture transactions with a tax lens and an eye for long-term planning, and also to counsel investors on fund formation and exit of opportunity zones and other special tax vehicles.
