Bret is known as a big picture thinker when working with clients on their tax planning strategies.
His strength is working with business owners who face major business decisions such as selling a business or acquiring another business and the complex transactions that often come with those decisions.
Bret’s education and experience as a former practicing attorney helps him understand complicated legal business structures so he can avoid potential blind spots that other CPAs can easily miss. And he’s adept at working with unique challenges such as evaluating potential franchise ownership opportunities for a client and helping a large family-owned business develop business and tax strategies to plan a sustainable future for generations to come. Bret’s clients range from multi-generational, family-owned businesses to private equity owned companies across a variety of industries.
