Jamie Szal is a partner at Brann & Isaacson, where she focuses her practice on assisting businesses in all aspects of state and local tax controversy, from regulatory and administrative proceedings through civil litigation. In the wake of the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, in which the Brann & Isaacson tax team represented Wayfair, and also as businesses come out of the COVID-19 pandemic with vastly different workplace policies, she also works with companies of all sizes to evaluate their nexus profile, consider a tax collection and reporting action plan, and register with state and local tax authorities across the U.S.
Jamie came to Brann & Isaacson following several years at the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. As Counsel in both the Litigation Bureau and Office of Appeals, Jamie focused on complex tax issues facing corporations and pass-through entities. She earned her LL.M. in Taxation and Certificate in State and Local Taxation, both with distinction, from Georgetown University Law Center.
Jamie is an active volunteer with the alumni network of her alma mater, Trinity College, where she currently serves on the Board of Trustees, recently as President of the Executive Committee of the Trinity College Alumni Association, currently serves on Trinity’s Women’s Leadership Council, and has also served as an alumni coach and mentor of pre-law students. Jamie also serves as the President of the Board of Directors of Community Dental, a non-profit dental organization focused on making superior quality dental services available to all Mainers, especially those in need. Lastly, Jamie serves on the Board of Directors of MothersEsquire, a non-profit dedicated to fighting for gender equity in the law and for empowering lawmoms to advocate for themselves and one another. Outside of work, Jamie enjoys raising her fiercely independent, impish daughter; singing ; exploring Down East and its many hiking trails with her husband, daughter, and dogs; and indulging in all things chocolate.
