Adam Sweet, J.D., LL.M.


Adam Sweet

I love the process of understanding a client’s business deal and helping the client match the tax implications to the business deal. I always enjoy the moment when I am able to explain a tax concept in a way that a client with no specific tax expertise can follow.


Adam helps clients navigate partnership tax rules. Generally, this means working to understand the economic impacts of partnership deals and then helping clients understand the tax ramifications of those partnerships.

Adam has a talent for distilling tax rules into concepts that can be understood by non-tax professionals. He is responsive and transparent with clients, and always takes an open ear to his interactions, listening carefully to understand all sides of an issue before reaching any conclusions.

Outside of the office, Adam is a family man who enjoys everyday moments with his wife and kids. When he wants to unwind, he loves getting outdoors for a good run or a round of golf.
