About Marianne Man

Marianne Man is tax lawyer with over 15 years of experience, and an LL.M. in Tax from a top ten graduate tax law program. She was the Chair of the Tax Section of the Orange County Bar Association in 2014 and Chair-Elect of the Tax Section in 2013. Her practice focuses on all aspects of taxation, particularly tax controversy (e.g., tax audits, U.S. Tax Court litigation, tax settlements with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and California Franchise Tax Board), tax aspects of buying and selling businesses, and tax aspects of business transactions.

She has devoted the bulk of her 15+ year legal career to addressing the needs of entrepreneurs, emerging growth as well as seasoned businesses. Unlike many tax attorneys, Ms. Man has well-rounded experience in three sectors of the tax community: U.S. Attorney's Office - Tax Division, tax law firm, and Big Five CPA firm. It is because of Ms. Man's unique well-rounded experience that Ms. Man has become a "one-stop legal resource" for many of her clients who have tax and business tax planning needs.

Ms. Man graduated with Distinction from a top ten LL.M. in Taxation law program in the United States, and is admitted to practice before the U.S. Tax Court, the Supreme Court of the State of California and the United Stated Central District Court of California.

Ms. Man was named a "Rising Star" in Mergers & Acquisitions by Los Angeles magazine in its Super Lawyers edition, and she was chosen by OC Register Metro magazine as a top tax attorney in 2013 and in 2014.

Ms. Man is a frequent writer and speaker on current tax and business issues, and regularly publishes on such topics.
