About Kenneth E Gray Jr.

I build legal solutions which create extraordinary value for my clients. Whether I am litigating Tax Court cases, requesting IRS letter rulings, starting up companies, forming partnerships, planning estates, managing wealth, or negotiating an investment, my goal is to provide best of breed legal, tax, and financial services at a reasonable investment. My mission is not just to help clients, but to make sure that my representation puts them in a better position than they were before. I am selective about who I work with as a client, but if you think we can work together to get you the best outcome possible, then let’s talk. My official title is Managing Partner at Alliance Law Firm International PLLC. This means I do tax matters, wealth management, estate planning, corporate issues for small and medium size business, venture capital, private equity, and natural resources (oil and gas). I have a long and distinguished career in finance and private equity. I have worked in research at a small West Coast hedge fund, as a private equity manager for the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) in Washington, and as an equity analyst for ABN*AMRO in Moscow, Russia. I have worked with over 40 private equity and listed market funds, managed a portfolio of over $5 billion, and traveled to dozens of countries in every single continent on Earth except Australia and Antarctica. I am a licensed attorney in the District of Columbia (2008) and Pennsylvania (2006). I am also admitted to practice before the US Tax Court and other Federal courts. My J.D. is from the Georgetown University Law Center (2004) and I have an MBA from the Yale School of Management (1997).
