Michael Ellis is the President and Managing Partner of Ellis & Ellis, LLC. Michael has been in the tax law arbitration industry for many years and has created one of the most prominent businesses in the industry. Part of the success Ellis & Ellis, LLC has accomplished is through Michael’s hands on approach with clients. He remains involved with each case from beginning to end. In most other tax firms, principles of the company do not participate in the daily management of clients files.
Michael Ellis has created a unique system that allows him to personally engage in each case file. He started Ellis & Ellis, LLC on the premise that there was a huge misconception in the industry. Most companies focus on penalties and interest with their clients rather than actually educating and providing clients with complete protection through formalized agreement processes. Michael is a member of the NATP, a member of the NFL Alumni Association, an ambassador for the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance, member of the Precious Children Foundation, and he also works with the St. Baldricks Foundation annually to promote childhood cancer research. Prior to founding Ellis & Ellis, LLC, Michael was the Regional Vice President for two fortune 500 companies. He attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, the University of Denver, and Bucknell University.
