Craig Griffith will work in firm’s Charleston office
Frost Brown Todd’s (FBT) State and Local Tax (SALT) team adds former West Virginia State Tax Commissioner Craig Griffith to its growing team. Griffith is known for helping clients develop strategies to maximize profit through effective tax planning and guidance on available federal, state and local tax incentives. He also assists clients in complex tax controversies for all state and local tax types.
Griffith has advised oil and natural gas producers and processors, pipeline companies, manufacturers, and solar energy companies on state and local tax issues, including incentives. He has also provided advice to remote sellers regarding changes to sales tax collection process in West Virginia.
“We couldn’t ask for a better person than Craig to build our SALT practice in Charleston and at FBT,” says Charleston Member-in-Charge Carte Goodwin. “He brings a unique understanding of West Virginia’s tax law from his tenure as West Virginia’s Tax Commissioner and his extensive experience in private practice. Expanding our firm’s tax team in Charleston is another step to provide West Virginia businesses with the best service possible.”
Griffith is a graduate of West Virginia University’s College of Business and College of Law.
