Joshua C. Weinberger concentrates his practice in the area of federal income tax planning for all types of commercial transactions, including partnership agreements, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, stock and asset purchase transactions, and other transactional contexts, addressing the federal (including international aspects), state, and local tax considerations.
Joshua handles a wide range of tax-related matters, both in the corporate and real estate contexts. He has represented both publicly traded and closely held companies in planning tax strategies and implementing corporate transactions.
He has a great deal of experience with like-kind exchanges (both with respect to real estate and other types of assets), as well as addressing the concerns of private and public REITs, pension funds, and other tax-exempt organizations.
In both his corporate and real estate practice, he has represented U.S. taxpayers making investments abroad, as well advising foreign individuals and entities regarding their operations and investments in the United States.
His practice also includes working with our Private Client Services Practice Group to address income and other related tax issues that arise in the context of estate planning. Outside of the transactional context, he has represented taxpayers before the IRS and state and local taxing authorities on audit and other controversy matters. He has also lectured on issues relating to partnerships, LLCs, real estate taxation, and exempt organizations/unrelated business income tax.
Joshua earned his undergraduate degree, magna cum laude, from Yeshiva University and his law degree, cum laude, from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was an editor of the University of Pennsylvania Law Review and a member of the Order of the Coif.
