Juliya L. Ismailov is an associate in the Tax, Trusts & Estates Department. Juliya focuses her practice in the following areas of tax planning and controversy.

Roughly half of her practice involves federal and state income tax strategy to obtain tax-efficient outcomes for her clients. She works closely with accountants and financial advisors to implement clients’ transactions with maximum tax-efficiency. Juliya has a niche specialty in helping businesses with multi-state operations come into past and prospective compliance with income and sales taxes across the country, subject to specific rules under the constitutional concept of “nexus” and in light of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Wayfair. In addition, Juliya helps corporate and individual clients resolve audits with taxing authorities involving income and trust fund taxes, such as sales and payroll taxes, by determining legal positions to minimize the total assessment and/or obtaining favorable installment agreements and offers in compromise to pay the assessment.

The other half of her practice involves complex estate planning and administration for individuals and their families over multiple generations: (a) from the early phases of defining strategy and executing estate planning documents; setting up gifting and insurance trusts; and forming family businesses and charitable foundations; (b) to the mid-stages of updating estate plans as family circumstances evolve, businesses grow, trusts need to merge, change situs or terms, and as tax laws change; and, finally, (c) to the end-stages of probating the wills; funding testamentary trusts; preparing and filing federal and state estate tax returns; counseling executors regarding their duties; and representing the interests of estates, executors, trustees and beneficiaries in estate and trust disputes.

Juliya earned her Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Russian literature from Yale University in 2007. After college, Juliya worked as an analyst at a venture capital firm before earning her Juris Doctor from Rutgers Law School- Newark in 2011. At Rutgers, Juliya was a full-tuition scholarship recipient of the Elizabeth Benjamin Scholarship, served as the Managing Editor of the Rutgers Computer & Technology Law Journal, and interned at the New York Attorney General’s Office and the United States Attorney’s Office in Washington, D.C. Prior to private practice, Juliya served as law clerk to the Honorable Judge Edith K. Payne on the New Jersey Appellate Division. In 2017, Juliya earned her Tax LL.M. from New York University.

Juliya is active in her BNI Gold Coast chapter for business owners, and often publishes articles and presents on topics in her tax practice, with a current focus on “post-Wayfair nexus” issues. Fully fluent in written and spoken Russian, she has also published articles on tax planning topics in Russian for the local community.
