Dan Eller Receives Mentor of the Year Award from New Tax Lawyer Committee

October 10, 2012


Dan Eller, a shareholder in the Portland office of Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt, has been selected to receive this year's Mentor of the Year Award from the New Tax Lawyer Committee of the Oregon State Bar Taxation Section.

The Tax Law Section of the Oregon State Bar provides a forum for sharing information about federal and state issues, and helps promote professionalism, leadership, and continuing legal education for its members and other attorneys practicing tax law in Oregon. Each year, the New Tax Lawyer Committee recognizes the efforts of one truly outstanding mentor with the Mentor of the Year Award.

Eller focuses his practice in the areas of tax and business law. He advises clients with both transactional and controversy matters. His transactional practice has its emphases on real property development transaction structuring; general personal and business tax advice and planning; and tax-exempt entity formation, qualification, and operation.

For 2012, as in previous years, Eller has been named to the Oregon "Rising Stars" list by Thomson Reuters. Eller graduated from Lewis & Clark Law School with a juris doctor degree and the University of Washington School of Law with a master of laws in taxation.
