In this connection, Bud's extensive experience with (a) the United States Government, (2) as Vice President-Tax  Counsel for a large New York Stock Exchange Company, and (3) in the private practice of law has enabled him to see disputes from the various perspectives of government, corporations, family businesses, partnerships, and individuals.  

His expertise includes handling complicated matters dealing with business, finance, employment, securities, personal injury, oil and gas, discrimination (sex, gender, racial, and religious discrimination), real estate, construction, probates and estates, taxes (income, property and estate taxes), professional malpractice, disputes involving government entities and agencies, and other areas. He is also experienced in dealing with disputes between the owners and other family members of family businesses.
