Nonprofit organizations and companies in a wide range of industries such as manufacturing, retail, cable television, real estate, professional services, waste management, and software, rely on Chris Wilson for assistance with a range of state tax planning and state tax litigation matters involving:

Business tax
Property tax
Franchise and excise tax
Sales and use tax
Challenging tax assessments and seeking tax refunds
Multi-state tax analysis for various business transactions in areas such as nexus, tax apportionment, tax exemptions, transferee liability, and voluntary disclosure agreements
State and local tax controversy, and state tax planning
Structuring and negotiating state tax incentives for relocating or expanding operations in Tennessee
With litigation experience covering a broad range of trust, probate and estate administration matters as well as conservatorship proceedings, Chris has represented financial institutions, particularly their trust and wealth management officers, in matters involving allegations of breach of trust and breach of fiduciary duty. He has also represented trust and estate beneficiaries in matters involving will contests, breach claims, and other claims involving fraud and undue influence. Clients count on Chris to develop strategies to resolve disputes within the applicable terms of trust instruments or estate planning documents while also seeking to minimize the impact upon client and family relationships.

Additionally, Chris represents both petitioners and respondents in conservatorship actions, and understands the legal complexities, family dynamics, and individual desires for autonomy involved in conservatorship proceedings. Clients rely on him to navigate these complexities while also focusing on reasonable solutions to preserve individual autonomy, ensure the receipt of necessary care and management for disabled individuals, and to maintain family harmony.
