Trailblazers Honors Matt Peurach for Opportunity Zone Work


MMM’s Matt Peurach is one of The American Lawyer’s inaugural South Trailblazers. The Trailblazers program honors attorneys who have moved the needle in the practice of law.  The special supplement to The American Lawyer honors only 44 attorneys in 16 states and Washington, D.C. The honor recognizes Peurach’s work launching one of the first Opportunity Zone Practices in the U.S. Part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the program provides the potential for capital gains on certain investments to be deferred, reduced or even eliminated over time. Peurach and his group have now closed more than 100 deals helping clients raise nearly $1 billion in capital. He is also looking to the future. He says MMM will monitor legislation closely so they can continue to help their clients meet their goals. Click here to read the entire profile in The American Lawyer.
