Richard Jones Named a 'Lawyer of the Year' by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly
Boston, MA - Sullivan is pleased to announce that Richard Jones has been named a 2021 "Lawyer of the Year" by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. Those recognized were selected by the Lawyers Weekly editorial department.
Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly featured an interview with Rich (page 6), in which he discusses his role in Oracle USA Inc. et.al. v. Massachusetts Commissioner of Revenue. In that case, the Supreme Judicial Court held that Massachusetts taxpayers have a statutory right to apportion sales tax on software purchased for use in multiple states. The decision eliminated the Commissioner of Revenue’s longstanding policy that barred taxpayers from using the abatement process to establish the correct apportioned tax – a major win for Massachusetts-based purchasers of software.
