Publication: Thompson Hine LLP
Thompson Hine LLP is pleased to add to its international transactional tax strength with the addition of Andrea Sharetta as a partner in its Tax practice in New York. She joins from Dentons, where she was a partner for 12 years.
“I was impressed by the depth of experience, camaraderie and national reputation of Thompson Hine’s Tax group,” said Sharetta of her decision to join the firm. “Its work for corporate clients across the country aligns well with my practice, as does the work handled by the firm’s International group. I know that having access to Thompson Hine’s highly regarded legal platform will greatly enhance my practice.”
Sharetta focuses on a broad range of federal tax issues, including domestic and cross-border taxable and tax-free mergers, acquisitions, spin-offs, and other reorganizations and restructurings. She has extensive experience advising multinational corporations on international tax issues, including business and entity structuring, the Subpart F provisions, the foreign tax credit rules, FIRPTA, tax treaties, and the tax treatment of inbound and outbound investments and financings. She also counsels individuals on federal tax issues related to closely held businesses and real estate holdings, including advising non-U.S. individuals on pre-immigration planning and inbound investments and U.S. individuals on the federal tax implications of outbound investments and expatriations.
“Andrea’s decades of experience providing strategic tax counsel to high-value clients makes her a perfect fit for our firm. She complements our existing tax practice, and her wealth of knowledge will serve our clients well,” said Todd Mason, partner-in-charge of the New York office.
Sharetta received her J.D. from Notre Dame Law School, her LL.M. in Taxation from New York University School of Law, and her B.A., summa cum laude, from Binghamton University. She served as an attorney-adviser to the late Judges William M. Fay and Lapsley W. Hamblen Jr. of the United States Tax Court.
Sharetta is an adjunct professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Silberman College of Business where she teaches tax courses in the M.S. in Taxation degree program.
