The Whole Picture: Tax Lawyer Ameek Ponda Combines the Macro and the Micro
Ameek Ashok Ponda was featured on the front cover of the 2020 Massachusetts Super Lawyer Magazine and profiled in the article "The Whole Picture: Tax Lawyer Ameek Ponda Combines the Macro and the Micro," which was published in the October 2020 edition of the magazine.
The article outines Ameek's impressive career and expertise in tax, M&A, and REIT law and his unique approach to complex legal issues by thinking about them from more than one perspective, taking into account the bigger picture in addition to the details. Robert LeDuc, a REIT lawyer who worked at Sullivan & Worcester for seven years and is now a partner at DLA Piper, describes Ameek as follows: “Currently, the U.S. real estate market benefits significantly from foreign pension fund investments, and I don’t think Congress would have been receptive to making those necessary changes without Ameek Ponda. He is hands down the best tax lawyer in the country. Not only because he’s hyper intelligent, but also because he strives to understand everything on the granular level and the big picture level. And he loves it. It’s like having a great throwing arm as a quarterback but also having a deep love and appreciation for the game. In that sense, I think Ameek is the Tom Brady of the tax world.”
