CHICAGO, January 7, 2019 – Levenfeld Pearlstein LLC (LP) is pleased to announce that Emily Hoyt has been elected income partner. A critical member of LP’s Corporate & Securities and Tax Planning & Litigation Practice Groups, Hoyt assists clients with the design, implementation and administration of employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) as an effective business succession strategy.

An attorney with the firm since 2010, Hoyt helps her clients navigate the interwoven business and legal issues that arise during the complete life cycle of an ESOP stock purchase transaction. She brings a big picture perspective to her work advising leading companies, making it a priority to understand her clients’ industries and business goals before helping them navigate an array of legal challenges and opportunities.

“I thoroughly enjoy working closely with middle market companies to address myriad legal issues relevant to keeping their businesses operating and growing effectively,” said Hoyt. “It is an honor to be welcomed into LP’s partnership, and I look forward to continuing to serve our dynamic and diverse set of business clients.”

Hoyt draws on her considerable tax law background to help her clients achieve the short- and long-term benefits of ESOPs. She also handles a broad range of general corporate matters for clients, including business formation, mergers and acquisitions, contract negotiation and tax structuring.

“Emily has had a great impact on the firm, not only with her ESOP skill set, but also in terms of her leadership within the firm’s Associates Committee,” said LP Chairman & Managing Partner, Robert A. Romanoff. “We congratulate her on this important career milestone and look forward to her continued excellence.”
