Chamberlain Hrdlicka state and local tax (SALT) practice chair recognized in special section in American Lawyer, Corporate Counsel and National Law Journal
PHILADELPHIA (NOVEMBER 2017) – Chamberlain Hrdlicka’s state and local tax (SALT) practice chair Stewart M. Weintraub has been selected as a 2017 Top-Rated Lawyer in Real Estate Law.
The honor is a product of a partnership between ALM and Martindale-Hubbell, the long-running attorney peer review ratings system that many consider the gold standard in attorney ratings. It will be published in a special “Legal Leaders” recognition section in the November issues of The American Lawyer, Corporate Counsel, and The National Law Journal, which are published by ALM.
Weintraub has focused his practice upon state and local taxation for more than 45 years. From audits through trials and appeals to the appellate courts, Weintraub represents clients in all aspects of state and local tax compliance and litigation. His practice also includes helping clients plan and structure transactions so that all state and local tax obligations are minimized.
Weintraub began his career with the City of Philadelphia Law Department where he rose to be chief of tax litigation and where he served as chief counsel of former Mayor William Green’s Tax Reform Commission. In 2003, Weintraub was appointed to serve as a member of a new voter-approved Tax Reform Commission. He also has held leadership positions for the American Bar Association and the Philadelphia Bar Association and has chaired or co-chaired the state and local tax committee for the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce since 1983. Now in private practice, Weintraub has been a shareholder at Chamberlain Hrdlicka since 2010.
