FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Austin, Texas – Ryan Law, a national law firm focusing on corporate tax litigation, today announced Doug Sigel has joined the Firm as Partner in the Austin, Texas office.  Mr. Sigel’s law practice concentrates on state and local tax, especially litigation at the administrative, trial, and appellate levels.  His litigation experience spans 23 years, and in that time, he has represented corporate clients in all sectors of the economy in hundreds of administrative appeals and court cases.

Prior to joining Ryan Law, Mr. Sigel was a Partner at an Austin, Texas trial law firm.  He is a frequent speaker on a variety of tax topics for the Institute for Professionals in Taxation (IPT), the ABA Tax Section, Texas Society of CPAs, and many other tax-industry seminars.  He will also be speaking at upcoming seminars sponsored by the Hartman Forum, IPT, the Tulane Tax Institute, the Texas Society of CPAs, and the ABA Tax Section.  Mr. Sigel is a graduate of Northwestern University and the University of Texas School of Law.  He is also currently counsel to the Texas Ambulance Association and has assisted emergency medical services providers with their legal issues for over 15 years.

“Doug’s litigation expertise in resolving complex tax disputes will be a tremendous asset to our clients who are seeking effective resolution of their tax cases,” said Kory L. Ryan, Managing Partner of Ryan Law.  “Having Doug join our Firm represents a significant step in our strategy to recruit and nurture the top legal talent in the tax field on a national basis.”

“I am proud to move our large tax practice to Ryan Law and to be a part of the formative stages of building the preeminent tax law firm in North America,” said Mr. Sigel.  “Ryan Law is creating a national platform to serve our clients in a taxpayer-centered environment.  Other law firms attempt to integrate a tax practice into their full-service litigation and transactional practices, and such tax practices are subsequently encumbered by conflict issues, overhead costs, and varied fee structures.

We will be rapidly implementing our strategy to build a national law firm, dedicated to representing taxpayers in a very focused and relentless fashion, which will leverage technology, our strong relationships in the state tax industry, and our talented lawyers.  We will also work in a collaborative manner with our clients and their tax consultants and advisors to deliver legal services in an innovative and efficient manner, and will be very open to alternative fee arrangements.”
