HMB's Fred Marcus Wins 2015 COST/Paul Frankel Excellence in State Taxation Award

The Council on State Taxation (COST) presented the 7th Annual COST/Paul Frankel Excellence in State Taxation Award to Fred Marcus of  Horwood Marcus & Berk Chartered. The COST/Paul H. Frankel Excellence in State Taxation Award was initiated in 2009 by COST to honor Morrison & Foerster's Paul Frankel and is presented to an individual in recognition of outstanding and continuing contributions to the state and local tax profession.  

Fred Marcus has been a leader in the SALT community for more than three decades and is universally respected by clients, practitioners and revenue departments. Fred developed a national practice and has represented clients in virtually every state.  His practice has taken him to the U. S. Supreme Court, where he helped secure a 9-0 victory in the Hunt Wesson case, as well as to the Supreme Courts of California, Missouri and Illinois. 

Fred is also a frequent writer and speaker on all things SALT, including serving as the chair of this year's NYU Institute in State and Local Taxation and also serving as an adjunct professor in the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law's Graduate Tax Program.

The Horwood Marcus & Berk SALT group  has grown under Fred's  vision to a full service, nationwide practice.  The group includes nine full time SALT attorneys including Marilyn Wethekam, who along with Fred makes HMB' SALT practice the first to be  honored with two recipients of the Paul H. Frankel award.
