WTAS expands alternative investment funds practice


Christopher Spiegleman, former director of tax at J.H. Whitney, has joined the Metro New York alternative investment funds practice at WTAS as a managing director in the Greenwich office.

Spiegelman brings a strong background in multiple industries and areas of taxation including investment partnerships, alternative investments, private equity, hedge and debt funds. 

At Whitney, Spiegelman addressed tax planning and structuring issues at the investor level, fund level, portfolio investment level and fund manager level. In addition, he worked closely with the principals of the firm to achieve wealth preservation including estate and insurance planning.

"Chris’ skill set is an excellent complement to our client base in the New York Metro area. We work with many clients in the alternative investment fund space and we believe Chris will be a true asset to these clients," says Joe Toce, the office managing director in New York.

Spiegelman is the sixth addition to the managing director group at WTAS in 2010. WTAS now has 96 managing directors throughout the country. 

WTAS is one of the largest independent tax firms in the US, providing a range of tax, valuation, financial advisory and related consulting services to individual and corporate clients across the country.
