Lino is also proficient at federal and state income tax compliance, tax planning, and tax strategy.
Lino is viewed as a trusted business advisor for many private companies. He works closely with clients in all phases of the business lifecycle—from initial start-up through pre-IPO business phases—and provides guidance for companies conducting business internationally and in most states in the U.S. Lino works with clients and guides them in selecting the most effective business structures, compensation structuring, family wealth planning, and many other strategic planning needs.
Prior to his public accounting work, Lino served as a staff accountant for a forensic accounting firm, specializing in business appraisal and economic calculations. In this role, he assisted in law cases of marital dissolutions, personal injury, business litigation, and complex litigation. Lino’s primary focus was the review of financial records and preparation of expert witness reports such as Cash Flow Analysis, Business Valuations, Economic Damages, and other accounting projects.
