William H. Hornberger

Mr. Hornberger is passionate about the practice of law and about helping people and enterprises achieve business goals. He is extremely grateful to his mentors, Larry Bean and Vester Hughes, because they not only taught him to be passionate about the law, they modeled character and class, and taught Mr. Hornberger how to have a rich and fulfilling life outside of the office.


For nearly 30 years, Mr. Hornberger has practiced in the areas of tax, transactional, international, and corporate law at Jackson Walker, and he has loved every minute of it! His tax practice has touched nearly every area of the tax law, including corporate, partnerships, and LLCs, international, real estate, oil and gas, bankruptcy, tax credit, tax controversy, and procedural matters.


His broad transactional practice includes mergers and acquisitions, complex partnerships, joint ventures, real estate and private equity arrangements, complicated cross-border business structuring matters involving investors from multiple countries, Tax Treaty, and IRS Competent Authority matters. He has represented taxpayers on tax controversy matters in IRS administrative appeals and before the U.S. Tax Court, the U.S. District Court, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, the Courts of Appeals for the Fifth and Eleventh Circuits, and the U.S. Court of International Trade.
