Doug Longhofer joined Martin Pringle as an associate after graduating from Washburn University School of Law in the spring of 2009. Before attending law school, Doug worked for two years as an engineer in the aircraft industry. Doug’s experience in a profession that requires such minute attention to detail as engineering has helped him transition to a transactional law practice. Doug practices in the areas of estate planning, trust and estate administration and business organizations, with an emphasis on taxation.
Doug has a particular interest in tax law, which began when he worked as a research assistant for Washburn tax professor Bradley T. Borden. That interest translated into him earning Certificates in Tax Law and in Business and Transactional Law, both with distinction. Doug assists clients in all areas of tax law, including income, corporate, partnership, estate and gift taxation. He advises clients on section 1031 like-kind exchanges, corporate reorganizations, business interest purchases, and 501(c)(3) compliance. Doug regularly represents clients before the Kansas Department of Revenue and the IRS. He has published articles on tax-related issues, and is a regular presenter on the subject.
Doug represents clients in a wide range of business and transactional matters, including formation of corporations, LLC’s, partnerships and charitable organizations. He assists clients with operating agreements, by-laws, asset purchase agreements, buy-sell agreements, and entity selection. Doug counsels clients on business succession planning, including related business taxation issues.
Estate Planning & Trust and Estate Administration
Additionally, Doug advises individual clients with their estate planning, estate and trust administration and probate needs. Doug works with clients to reach their asset protection goals, and assists clients in drafting individually tailored documents, including wills and trusts, advance care directives, and health and financial powers of attorney. Doug is also experienced in guiding families through the challenges surrounding the trust and estate administration process.
