Murtha Cullina recently welcomed Ryan E. Dunn to our Tax practice based in New Haven. Ryan advises on U.S. taxation, with an emphasis on cross-border activities, transactional matters and business transactions for various entities, covering sectors like technology, finance and real estate. His international tax expertise aids U.S. businesses with foreign operations and vice versa. He also offers pre-immigration tax planning, advises on citizenship tax implications and has experience with Section 1202 gain exclusions and opportunity zone investments. Learn more about him in this Q&A.

Why did you join Murtha?

As a native of Connecticut returning home, I wanted to join a full-service law firm with a great reputation and deep roots in New England. At the same time, as an international tax attorney, I often need to work with counsel outside the United States. Murtha, along with its membership in the global Lex Mundi network, was a perfect fit for my practice.

Tell us about your practice.

I have broad based experience in federal tax. I have provided tax advice to individuals and publicly traded multinationals, and every size of business in between. Many of the issues on which I advise are purely domestic, but I also have substantial experience with international transactions, which implicates additional rules in the tax code, foreign law and tax treaties. Regardless of the type of client or issue, clients come to me for practical and actionable advice for complex issues.

What do you enjoy most about being a lawyer?

I enjoy developing long-term relationships with clients. It is very gratifying watching their businesses grow and seeing the tax planning I put into place (sometimes years prior) pay off. A relatively small investment of my time can yield tremendous results, which is one reason why it is so important for businesses to include sophisticated tax advisors on their teams.
