Thomas Gray, a veteran transactional tax and investment tax attorney, has joined Troutman Pepper’s national Tax + Benefits Practice Group in New York as a partner. Gray joins the firm from Faegre Drinker.
“We are looking forward to welcoming Tom to the team,” said Partner Joan Arnold, who leads the practice. “Our clients will benefit greatly from his experience in corporate and partnership transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, reorganizations, restructuring, spinoffs and equity and debt financings. His deep experience in investment funds is also a major plus for us.”
As both an accountant and a lawyer, Gray understands tax issues from every perspective. When clients undertake transactions or investments, he navigates the complex tax laws and considerations at stake so they can focus on their business goals. He supports both domestic and offshore clients on cross-border tax matters.
“Tom’s arrival is an outstanding addition to our tax practice and to our New York office,” said New York Office Managing Partner Steven Khadavi. “He is well-situated to add significant value to our clients.”
“I am excited to join Troutman Pepper’s tax team, and to continue to grow my practice and build relationships with clients and my new colleagues at the firm. I am particularly excited about the firm’s collaborative approach,” Gray said. “Joan Arnold has built a terrific team, and I am thrilled to be its newest member,” he concluded.
Gray earned his JD from Boston University School of Law and his bachelor’s degree from University of Vermont. He is also a Certified Public Accountant.
