Andrea B. Mouw

I enjoy working with a wide range of people and clients across the firm as well as the challenge of helping clients navigate complex tax situations. I work with them to identify solutions that are both technically correct and practical.


With a law degree and years of federal, state and international tax experience, Andrea provides a broad range of expertise. Her main area of focus is on accounting method issues, such as income and expense recognition, capitalization, Section 199 and inventory issues. She also advises clients on issues related to the taxation of financial products and alternative investments.

When you work with Andrea, you get a no-nonsense partner who will provide straightforward explanations of the tax rules and their application to you and your organization. She takes the time to get to know each client and understand their unique situation in order to provide accurate, helpful solutions that draw upon our full depth of resources.

When she's not in the office, Andrea loves long, relaxed weekend brunches and spending time with friends and family. She also enjoys getting glitzed up and going out for an evening at the opera. On nights in, it's board games and movies ... and probably sweat pants.
