Mark A. Limardo provides tax planning for complex commercial transactions.

Mark delivers practical tax planning across a broad spectrum of industries and transactions. Mark counsels public and private companies on mergers and acquisitions (domestic and cross-border), start-ups, joint ventures, capital market / financing transactions, real estate acquisitions and dispositions and other business dealings in which tax considerations play an important role.

Mark is also expert in the use of federal and state tax credits as a source of tax-advantaged equity (alone or in conjunction with tax-exempt bonds), including opportunity zones, low-income housing tax credits (LIHTC), historic tax credits (HTC), and new markets tax credits (NMTC).  He has worked on all sides of these transactions, representing developers (private and non-profit), tax credit investors, syndicators, community development entities (CDEs), consultants and lenders.

As part of his community development practice, Mark assists non-profit entities on a broad range of issues including corporate governance, real estate development (either on their own or in conjunctions with a for-profit partner) and unrelated business taxable income (UBTI).
