The Firm opened its doors in downtown Manhattan, NY in 2008 after principal attorney U. Alexander Eze moved on from Shearman & Sterling LLP and Ernst & Young prior to that, to build a practice that would help underserved sections of the business community in their tax struggles. The firm expanded to the Houston, Texas area in 2017 to further its mission of bringing business and tax law counsel to businesses that can afford a few good lawyers but not a major firm.
