Effective 1 November 2021, Jeff moves to the Legal Chair position after a very successful three-year tenure as Chair of the North America region.

At Golenbock Eiseman, Jeff leads the firm's corporate tax practice. He is involved in structuring many of the corporate transactions in which the firm is involved, especially in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, limited liability companies, partnerships and S corporations, executive compensation, private equity and venture capital investments, and fund formations.

As well as representing the interests of the legal membership on the AGA Worldwide Board, Jeff will play an important role in formulating an alliance-wide strategy that will drive up the alliance’s value proposition and in supporting the Executive Office to implement plans.

Jeff Berger comments:

“It is an honour to be appointed to this important position within the alliance to represent our law firm members on the Worldwide Board. As Legal Chair, I will strive to develop and implement strategies that will continue to help raise the profile of AGA across all jurisdictions.

“I look forward to working closely with our law firm members and finding ways we can all work together more effectively and collaboratively in 2022 and beyond.”

Alliott Global Alliance CEO, Giles Brake adds:

“Jeff’s appointment and continued involvement on our Worldwide Board reflects his achievements as Chair of the North America region and the high esteem in which he is held by the global membership. We have a fast-growing legal membership and must be ready to meet head on the various legal and commercial challenges to our business. I can think of no-one we would rather have in our corner right now than Jeff.”

Daryl Petrick, CPA and Tax Partner at Bowman & Company CPAs in Stockton, California, succeeds Jeff Berger as Chair of the North America region.
