TroyGould Adds Daniel Rygorsky With An Eye Towards E-Commerce
Rapidly Expanding Business Law Practice Lures New Partner From Skadden Arps
LOS ANGELES – August 16, 2016 – To further expand its ability to provide legal services surrounding the ever-increasing amount of business conducted online, Los Angeles-based law firm TroyGould has added Daniel Rygorsky as a Partner.
“During his nearly 12 years at Skadden Arps, Daniel handled a wide range of litigation matters including a particular expertise in the area of e-commerce,” said Jeffrey W. Kramer, Chair of the Litigation Practice at TroyGould. “Whether analyzing the potential tax liability of a client‘s existing business model or advising and assisting a client to develop a new business model, Daniel’s work has afforded him the opportunity to explore in the ins and outs of the issues affecting e-commerce and technology companies, which will be greatly beneficial to our clients.”
“There’s never been a greater level of government interest in taxing e-commerce, and that’s made things very complicated for some businesses trying to figure out which states to operate out of, which tax laws are applicable and how to avoid running afoul of regulatory and statutory schemes,” said Rygorsky, who has represented e-commerce companies such as priceline.com LLC in litigation throughout the country, including administrative, trial court and appellate court proceedings, and assisted others such as Booking.com B.V. in developing business models and strategies.”
Rygorsky says he feels a great kinship with the TroyGould team because he believes there’s no problem that cannot be solved or avoided with creative 360-degree thinking and “the relentless and efficient pursuit of the optimal outcome.”
“I’m happy to join TroyGould and share my expertise with this dynamic community of highly intelligent attorneys working together to constantly find new ways to help clients,” Rygorsky added.
Rygorsky prides himself on his expertise in analyzing and mastering statutes and regulations. Whether it be the Americans with Disabilities Act, ERISA, the Credit Repair Organizations Act, or federal, state, and local tax statutes, Rygorsky can connect the dots others fail to see and present solutions that might otherwise be overlooked.
Rygorsky received his B.A. in Government from Dartmouth College where he was awarded the Pressman Prize for Excellence in American Politics and his J.D. from Columbia University School of Law where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar.
