New York-based law firm Sadis & Goldberg has named two new partners—Mitchell Taras and Alexis Gelinas.

Taras is a member of the firm’s corporate and real estate group while Gelinas joins the tax group in the firm’s New York office.

Taras represents clients in a variety of complex real estate transactions, including acquisitions, dispositions, financing and construction. On the corporate side, Taras counsels proprietorships, franchisees and other closely held businesses in their day-to-day operations. He also has extensive experience in structuring, negotiating and implementing various business transactions.

Gelinas focuses principally on providing tax advice to investment managers of hedge funds, private equity funds, and other investment funds. He also provides tax advice to U.S. pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and other U.S. and foreign institutional investors in connection with their investments in private equity funds, hedge funds and U.S. joint ventures. In addition, Gelinas has extensive experience with respect to the “plan assets” and other ERISA regulatory issues.

“Alex’s substantial tax and ERISA experience will broaden and deepen our bench in these areas and will be a vital part of Sadis & Goldberg’s strategic growth,” said Steven Etkind, head of the tax group at Sadis & Goldberg.
