Jeremy is a corporate and tax attorney and a founding partner of Watson Sloane PLLC. He believes firmly in the notion that the attorney-client relationship is and should be one of the most important relationships any business person can have and that it should be built on mutual respect, empathy, trust, reliability and shared values. To that end, Jeremy’s clients tend to be not only long-time clients, but also long-time friends. There is nothing more gratifying to him than knowing that he contributed to the success of a client or that he helped resolve a significant legal issue, and this is primarily what drives him to work so hard and devote the time and passion he devotes to his practice.
Jeremy acts as outside general counsel to a variety of businesses, in addition to advising entrepreneurs, emerging growth and middle market businesses on business and commercial transactions, including complex commercial contracts, mergers and acquisitions, corporate matters, private equity and venture capital transactions, corporate reorganizations, real estate fund formation, and capital-raising transactions. Jeremy also advises domestic and international clients on U.S. corporate, partnership, international, income and other tax-related matters, ranging from structuring their domestic and international activities in a tax-efficient manner to defending their tax controversy matters. He brings a unique perspective to his clients in that he possesses significant international and in-house experience, large law firm transactional experience, and has litigated numerous commercial disputes. Before founding the firm, he practiced in-house with a Fortune 50 corporation, in the Tax Group at DLA Piper and in the Corporate Group at Akerman.
