With over 40 years of tax practice and a wide breadth of experience, Nina Krauthamer is widely respected by her peers and is valued as a trusted senior advisor by many of the families and charities she has represented.

In her role as a transactional tax attorney, Nina brings an acute awareness of the economic and business sides of a deal, using a flexible and pragmatic approach. Nina regularly works with U.S. and foreign individuals and companies on U.S. real estate and other U.S. business ventures. She reviews complex corporate mergers and acquisitions, and structures partnerships, joint ventures and limited liability companies in both the domestic and cross-border context. As special tax counsel, Nina is often asked to advise senior executives of major public companies and international charities on their employment arrangements. She sensitively counsels foreign individuals and families planning a move to the U.S. or returning to their home countries, staying attuned to the family’s particular needs and objectives.

Nina takes pride in her life-long work with charities and not-for-profit organizations:

  • Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in helping bring foreign dance troops to America to perform in special BAM festivals and Ballet Boyz, a U.K. all male dance company, in their tours of the U.S.

  • Tikva Children’s Home — an international charity that saves at-risk Jewish children in Odessa from the misery of state orphanages — in a restructure of their international operations

  • International Jewish relief agencies, including the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the overseas arm of the American Jewish Community, and the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (the Claims Conference) aiding victims of Nazi persecution

  • Disaster relief organizations organized in response to 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina

Nina is a prolific writer — and an avid opera lover. In addition to her publication in respected legal journals such as the RPTE eReport, the Journal of Taxation and Regulation of Financial Institutions, and the Journal of Taxation of Investments, Nina has also written music reviews for the Wagner Society of New York and Operawire.

Nina is often invited to speak at professional and educational programs. She has taught in the Baruch College Master of Taxation Program, as well as at New York Law School, and has presented on several occasions for Bloomberg, Strafford Webinars, and the New York City Bar Association, where she received the highest speaker rating.
