Haynes and Boone, LLP proudly announces that Michael DePompei has joined its Dallas office as a partner in the firm’s Tax Practice Group. DePompei focuses on tax issues in the partnership, real estate, and tax-exempt areas.

“One spectacular aspect about Mike is that he has particular skill at solving very complex taxation issues,” said Jeff Dorrill, a partner in the Business Planning and Tax Practice Group. “Mike is focused on solving problems, and not merely raising issues. He will be a wonderful asset to our clients.”

DePompei provides federal income tax advice to a wide variety of clients, including partnerships, real estate investment trusts, tax-exempt organizations, corporations, and individuals. He drafts partnership agreements incorporating concepts such as special allocations, targeted capital accounts, and compliance with the fractions rule of Code section 514(c)(9)(E).

Before joining the firm, DePompei was a director in the Washington National Tax Practice Group of Deloitte LLP and advised Deloitte practice offices worldwide regarding the U.S. federal income tax treatment of partnerships, real estate investment trusts, and tax-exempt organizations. He structured business transactions to maximize tax efficiencies, such as the use of a RIDEA structure in the acquisition of a portfolio of over 100 properties valued at $3.4 billion total by a real estate investment trust.

“Haynes and Boone is a collaborative environment that offers me the opportunity to solve problems and handle complex transactions to provide maximum value to clients,” said DePompei.
