Lance focuses on a relationship-oriented tax practice, thereby enabling him to utilize his immense creativity in a manner uniquely suited to each client’s personalized needs and aspirations.

As co-chair of the Firm’s Tax & Business Planning Group, serving both large and closely held entities and individuals domestically and abroad, Lance handles complex joint venture and corporate transactions, formulating optimal structures, and the characterization of funding in the tax, real estate, securities, intellectual property, and estate planning fields. This has manifested itself through devising unique business and tax structures in both the domestic and international realms exclusively available to Barack Ferrazzano clients.

On that basis, it is not surprising that he has been vetted by, and regularly receives, client referrals from the likes of BlackRock, Merrill Lynch, UBS, and Wintrust to utilize these proprietary structures for the benefit of some of their most significant customers. Lance advises clients before the Internal Revenue Service and other taxing authorities through the audit stage and beyond.
