Lisa Starczewski is a trusted business advisor who focuses her practice on several areas of transactional tax law. She works closely with pass-throughs, corporate and real estate clients in structuring business transactions, drafting tax provisions, and solving complex tax issues.
Because of Lisa’s reputation for listening carefully to clients and providing smart, clear, and actionable answers to tough questions, she has become the principal client relationship manager and team leader for one of the firm’s largest institutional clients. She is co-chair of the firm’s Tax section and co-chair of the firm’s Opportunity Zones Team.
Lisa is well known for her exceptional tax-technical understanding. Prior to joining Buchanan, she practiced tax law with Morgan, Lewis & Bockius and Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis. She was also self-employed as a tax consultant and writer/speaker. In 2001, Lisa developed TaxCruncherPro, a software program designed to compute complex business and personal tax planning calculations. From 1997 to 1999, Lisa was a developer at Tax Management, Inc., where she focused on efforts to integrate tax and technology to add interactivity and web-based delivery to its educational products.
To Lisa, the two most important elements of her work are the relationships that she develops with clients and colleagues and the opportunity to help clients by employing “cutting edge” knowledge of new and existing tax rules to deliver efficient, focused and meaningful solutions. Lisa is a great advocate, easy to talk to, and an effective presenter, who – according to client accounts – consistently exceeds expectations.
