Adam Beckerink re-joined Baker & McKenzie as Counsel in Chicago on November 1 after working at Reed Smith, strengthening the state and local tax capabilities of Baker & McKenzie's North America tax practice.

Beckerink assists businesses and individuals on a broad range of state tax planning and dispute resolution matters, including audit, litigation and appellate practice in matters such as state False Claims Act tax defence, state tax refund class action defence, individual residency, telecommunications, excise tax and sales and income tax.

He regularly advises multinational enterprises on multi-state tax planning and the tax aspects of mergers and acquisitions, and he has resolved complex state tax matters before administrative appeal boards, tax tribunals and state courts across the US.

Beckerink began his legal career at the US Tax Court as an attorney adviser to special trial judge Stanley Goldberg and served as an associate at Baker & McKenzie from 2006 to 2008. In his 10 years of practice, he has written several articles on tax law and has lent his talents to pro bono matters, including representing veterans before the Department of Veterans Affairs.
