Mr. Torres initially gained vast tax experience as an associate with the San Francisco office of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PwC LLP”). In the Investment Management group, Mr. Torres worked closely with partners and clients to address the myriad of tax issues faced by Hedge Funds, RIC’s (Mutual Funds), REITS and investment partnerships.
Mr. Torres then started Equity Investment Exchange, a new IRC 1031 Like-Kind Exchange subsidiary for a large privately-held title insurance company in Denver, Colorado. As general counsel for Equity Investment Exchange, Mr. Torres was integral to laying the legal foundation of the newly formed subsidiary and also became a valuable business development resource. Mr. Torres assisted clients in minimizing their tax liabilities in the process of divesting of unwanted real estate and reinvesting in new assets.
Most recently, in 2007, Mr. Torres decided to move from San Francisco to San Diego and start a new facet in his career as a solo practitioner.
