Winstead files suit to obtain refund


Winstead shareholder Peter Nolan and of counsel Jennifer Patterson Rabb are representing the firm in Winstead PC v. Susan Combs, et al. (Susan Combs is Texas' Comptroller of Public Accounts).

Winstead is seeking a refund for expenses towards continuing legal education, attorney occupation taxes and parking, listing these expenses as deductible “employee benefits” under the Texas Tax Code. The suit could have implications for other law firms that fund such expenses.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
