David Mittelstadt Opens New Law Practice

Monday, July 8, 2019

Seasoned attorney David Mittelstadt announced Monday the formation of The Mittelstadt Law Firm LLC, a Chattanooga area-based national practice focusing primarily on transactional business tax issues and other legal services relevant to business clients.

Mr. Mittelstadt, who served as the 2018-19 chair of the Tennessee Bar Association's Tax Section, and who remains on the Section's Executive Committee, brings over 35 years of transactional tax experience to his new firm. He has worked previously as a tax attorney in major national firms including Shearman & Sterling and Fish & Richardson, and spent more than seven years as the in-house U.S. Tax Counsel for the Canadian controlled Thomson Corporation group (now Thomson Reuters).

Mr. Mittelstadt’s practice has spanned from representation on very large international transactions all the way to representation of small, local, and startup businesses. Practice areas include mergers and acquisitions, dispositions, corporate financial structuring, general corporate, LLC, and partnership tax planning, and the U.S. tax aspects of international transactions.

“After decades spent working at and learning from major law firms in cities across the U.S. and England, I’m thrilled to be opening the doors of my own practice right here in the Chattanooga area,” said Mr. Mittelstadt. “Eastern Tennessee is decidedly business-friendly, and there are ample opportunities for businesses of any kind – including those in the legal industry – to thrive in the Chattanooga area. I look forward to working with other businesses, both big and small, in the region, and to supporting the Chattanooga area business community however I can.”

The Mittelstadt Law Firm LLC's initial office will be located in Rossville with plans to open a Chattanooga office soon. Mr. Mittelstadt will represent clients from the region as well as around the nation. He is licensed to practice in Tennessee as well as in Georgia, New York, and Massachusetts, as is a member of the Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn, one of England's four Inns of Court.  His firm is committed to offering clients a better value equation than that which can be offered by most major firms: big-firm experience with the dramatically lower costs of a smaller firm, said officials.

Additional information, including a list of representative transactions, can be found at www.mittel-law.com.

A Better Plan Is Needed For Quarry Golf Course At Mountain Creek
