Law Office of
James B. Mann
James Mann has unmatched broad-based business tax experience which provides the foundation for his current focus on cannabis tax. Most of his current clients are cannabis companies, some publicly traded, some with aspirations to being publicly traded in the near future, and some are privately held and intend to remain that way for now. Mr. Mann helps these clients with tax planning to minimize current tax liability (restructuring, tax accounting, revising intercompany agreements, transfer pricing) as well as representing them before the IRS and in court.
Mr. Mann has done tax planning for large corporations and financial institutions as well as partnerships and high net worth individuals. His tax experience includes work at large financial institutions, public accounting firms, large law firms and specialized tax firms. His work has included planning and structuring complex transactions as well as audit work and tax litigation. His tax litigation experience includes both taxpayer work (including arguing the significant Harborside cannabis case in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals) as well as litigation on behalf of the Tax Division of the Department of Justice.
