Joy MacIntyre has a broad-based federal tax practice with an emphasis on providing tax planning and transactional advice to U.S. and non-U.S. based businesses and their investors. She advises clients in connection with their acquisition, restructuring and disposition of interests in a wide variety of domestic and foreign businesses and investment assets, including real estate, investment funds and operating businesses. Ms. MacIntyre has extensive experience forming partnerships, limited liability companies, Subchapter C and S corporations, real estate investment trusts, mutual funds and tax-exempt entities, and advising those entities and their owners with respect to their ongoing operations within and outside the United States. She has also counseled individuals on pre-U.S. residency tax planning and on the U.S. tax implications of surrendering U.S. citizenship or long-term permanent resident status, including consideration of potential tax treaty benefits.

Ms. MacIntyre is particularly experienced at working as part of a team of advisors within and outside the firm to deliver cohesive, wide-ranging advice on complicated, often multijurisdictional matters.

While attending the New York University School of Law, Ms. MacIntyre was a member of the Moot Court Board, was elected to the Order of the Coif, and served as an editor of the Tax Law Review. Joy MacIntyre is recommended by Legal 500 US 2017 and 2019.
