Jonathan Drake assists his colleagues in the areas of federal income tax, state and local tax, private wealth and corporate mergers and acquisitions as he works to build his practice.

His recent internship experience working with state and local tax incentives with government municipalities allowed him to work with private corporations and developers seeking to attain various economic development incentives. He has been involved with all parts of the incentive process, from reviewing incoming applications to ultimately drafting and reviewing the corresponding economic development incentive agreements. He has also worked on a team tasked with researching available economic development incentives available on a multi-state level for clients. Dedicated and hard-working, he seeks to understand his clients' goals and motivations in order to achieve the best possible outcome for them.
