Richmond tax and employee benefits associate
Emily Winbigler will join firm client Markel Corp., a holding company for insurance,
reinsurance and investment operations, on April 20.
Winbigler will be tax counsel for the Richmond-based corporation’s tax
accounting department, advising on tax matters related to operations,
acquisitions and joint ventures.
“Emily has been a valuable member of our department throughout her tenure
at McGuireWoods,” said Atlanta partner
Gerald Thomas, who chairs McGuireWoods’ Tax & Employee Benefits Department. “She is
an extraordinary lawyer and person, and will be successful at Markel. We
look forward to continuing to work with Emily as our client.”
Since joining McGuireWoods in September 2016, Winbigler has handled federal
and state tax matters, focusing on renewable energy investment, energy tax
credits and incentives, financing transactions, and corporate and
partnership tax planning. She has advised clients in new market tax credit
leverage fund transactions, state and local tax compliance matters, and
administrative audit appeals with state taxation agencies. She also
counseled real estate investment trusts and publicly traded companies in
capital market transactions.
“I cannot thank my McGuireWoods mentors enough,” Winbigler said. “Through
them, I gained valuable experience working on complex matters and
interfacing directly with clients. I look forward to continuing to work
with McGuireWoods lawyers in my new role.”
