As a strategic corporate tax attorney, Steve Good is sought by companies who are pursuing transactions that need to be structured in a highly tax efficient manner, both for the company and its shareholders/investors. Working with business owners, private equity investors, hedge funds and private company executives, as well as in-house corporate counsel, Steve has a big picture view. His years of deal experience enable Steve to add value to a tax strategy discussion from the first hour.

Due to the business focus of his tax practice, and his 15 years as Managing Partner then CEO of Gardere, Steve understands what it takes to run a successful business. Coupled with his financial and corporate tax attorney background, this experience allows Steve to provide clients with practical legal advice that addresses their business needs.

Steve serves on the Executive Committee of the Dallas Regional Chamber and chairs the Public Policy Advisory Counsel. In these roles, he and the committee identify and address the policy issues that are most important to the North Texas economy, such as infrastructure developments, water and transportation. Steve understands that for many clients, these big picture policy issues influence future company decisions and, at times, are as important as their individual legal issues.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
