Schwabe Presents Inaugural Client Service Award to Marc Sellers
On March 1, Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt, a Pacific Northwest law firm, honored shareholder Marc Sellers with its newly created firm-wide client service award. Each year, the "John L. Schwabe Client Service Award" will recognize an attorney in the firm who goes "above and beyond" in their dedication and service to firm clients. Recipients of the award are nominated by their colleagues and then selected by the firm's Client Service Committee.
"Marc is certainly deserving of this new award and he certainly exemplifies stellar client service," said Mark Long, Schwabe's managing partner. "As part of Marc's practice, he handles very difficult situations, which he navigates masterfully."
In addition to peer recognition, the firm makes a $1,000 donation to the nonprofit organization of the award recipient's choice. In this case, Sellers has chosen The Oregon Sports Trust.
Sellers has been with Schwabe since 1980 and focuses his practice in the areas of civil and criminal tax controversies, including administrative appeals and litigation. He has extensive experience working with tax controversies arising under federal laws, as well as under the laws of the states of Oregon, Washington and California. Sellers has received several other distinctions, which include being listed in Best Lawyers in America and an Oregon Super Lawyer by Law & Politics magazine. He graduated from Loyola University School of Law with a juris doctor degree and from Georgetown University Law Center with a master of laws degree in taxation.
