 Joseph (Jay) B. Darby III 

Joseph  (“Jay”) B. Darby III has more than thirty years of experience  representing clients in a wide range of tax, estate planning, and  related business matters. His goal is to help clients enjoy their lives  by reducing taxes, avoiding (or resolving) problems with taxing  authorities, and passing personal wealth to the appropriate next  destination. Jay's clients range from individuals to large public and  private business entities, and while he has structured some of the most  sophisticated transactions in the business arena, he is mindful of the  fact that people rather than businesses ultimately pay taxes. Therefore,  he always structures transactions with the goal of minimizing the tax  costs and maximizing the after-tax return for the people he  represents. An early proponent of Opportunity Zones (an investment  incentive created under the 2017 Tax Act), Jay has become one of the  country’s go-to experts in the area, helping clients bring business  investment and ultimately prosperity to some of the most challenged  areas of the country.Jay is the author of a highly acclaimed  treatise, Practical Guide to Mergers, Acquisitions and Business  Sales (click here to purchase). He has written more than 1,000 articles  on tax, business, and a diverse range of other topics. He teaches  numerous advanced tax courses at Boston University School of Law's  Graduate Tax Program, and has taught regularly at Boston College Law  School and Bentley College (in the Masters of Taxation program). He is a  popular speaker on the national tax conference and webinar circuit,  lecturing regularly on a wide range of topics. He is also the founder  and principal host of the OZoom Forum, a video-conferencing platform  sponsored by Boston University School of Law that provides a venue for  sharing information and ideas about Opportunity Zones and related  subjects.Jay’s many awards and honors include being recognized in the  area of tax practice by Best Lawyers in America®, being recognized for  his achievements in Legal 500 U.S., being named a “Top 25 Opportunity  Zone Influencer” by Opportunity Zone Expo Magazine, and receiving an AV  Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Rating™.  Jay was a partner  at some of the largest and most prestigious law firms in the country,  including Greenberg Traurig LLP and Holland & Knight LLP,  before founding his own firm, Joseph Darby Law PC.
