NATHAN S. “Nate” HANEY focuses his practice on income and estate tax planning, probate, trust and estate administration, business formation and succession planning, mergers and acquisitions, and general commercial transactions. Within the area of estate planning, Nate has worked with business owners and assisted them with the transition of their businesses in a tax (both income and estate) efficient manner.
Nate’s non-estate planning work in the areas of mergers and acquisitions and general commercial transactions has helped him develop a skill set that complements his estate planning practice, which promotes a high level of continuity and consistency for his clients in addressing their business and personal legal needs.
He obtained his law degree from the University of Montana in 1999, and his Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree in taxation from New York University in 2000. Nate served as an attorney-advisor to Judge Herbert L. Chabot of the United States Tax Court in Washington D.C. from 2000-2002. He is licensed to practice in Montana, Wyoming, the United States Tax Court, and Arizona (inactive).
