Holland & Hart Expands with Addition of Crapo Smith

Press Release

March 25, 2014

Salt Lake City – The law firm Crapo Smith PLLC will join Holland & Hart’s Salt Lake City office. Attorneys David J. Crapo, John T. Deeds and Pamela B. Hunsaker will bring their state and local tax practice to Holland & Hart, creating the largest state and local tax legal team in the state.

The addition of Crapo, Deeds and Hunsaker to the Holland & Hart state and local tax law practice brings the total number of attorneys in the group firm-wide to 17. The addition of the three Crapo attorneys increases the size of Holland & Hart’s Salt Lake City office to a total of 92 attorneys, including a team of six state and local tax law practitioners.

“The arrival of David, John and Pamela strengthens Holland & Hart’s state and local tax law team, allowing the attorneys from both firms to more effectively and completely serve clients in Utah,” said Eric Maxfield, managing partner of Holland & Hart’s Salt Lake City office.

Crapo practices primarily in the area of state and local taxation and has extensive litigation experience. He has served as Chair of the Utah Tax Review Commission, which reviews Utah's tax laws and makes policy and legislation recommendations to the State Legislature and the Governor.

Hunsaker’s practice focuses on state and local tax issues and she has represented clients before Utah’s local taxing jurisdictions, the Utah State Tax Commission and Utah’s appellate courts.

Deeds’ primary practice is in the area of state and local taxation. While in law school, he worked in the Tax and Revenue Division at the Utah Attorney General’s Office.
