For nearly 20 years, Nicole Stanger has helped domestic and foreign enterprises and their executives maximize compensation-related tax benefits.

Each year, Nicole works with M&A teams Firmwide on multiple private and public company transactions regarding the golden parachute payment tax implications of executive compensation arrangements, including the preparation of quantitative analyses involving the calculation and payment of such tax.

Nicole's recent transactions include Reynolds American's $27.4 billion acquisition of Lorillard and its acquisition by British American Tobacco Plc at a value exceeding $90 billion; Sherwin-Williams' $11.3 billion acquisition of The Valspar Corporation; and Exelis' acquisition by Harris Corporation for $4.8 billion.
