Foley & Lardner LLP Partner Lynn Gandhi received the Council on State Taxation (COST)/Paul H. Frankel Excellence in State Taxation Award for her outstanding and continuing contributions to the state and local tax profession.
Paul Frankel, the well-known state and local tax attorney often described as “the godfather of state and local taxation,” was the inaugural recipient of the eponymous award. Frankel’s principles and values continue to be the guideposts COST uses in the selection process.
Gandhi is a member of the firm’s Tax, Benefits & Estate Planning Practice. She advises clients on sophisticated tax planning opportunities, manages complex audits, and provides transactional support on the multistate tax implications of merger and acquisition transactions, including the defense of post-closing indemnity and escrow claims related to pre-closing liabilities and the use of voluntary disclosure programs to mitigate such claims. Gandhi is also a registered lobbyist, representing clients in legislative and policy initiatives across multiple industry platforms.
The award was presented to Gandhi during COST’s 53rd Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida.
