A great idea should not be silenced for want of financing or lack of business knowledge. That’s the attitude that drives Kevin Howley to go “beyond the numbers” to provide in-depth guidance and support for start-up and growth stage businesses. Kevin brings more than 35 years of experience to Gray, Gray & Gray’s Tax Department. He has helped hundreds of businesses in a variety of industries, including architecture, design and other professional services companies, evolve from a bright idea to a brilliant business model. His specialization in royalty examinations for owners of intellectual property such as trademarks and patents has also helped many businesses to ensure compliance with license agreements and avoid underpayment of royalties thereby maximizing recovery. As part of the Tax Department, Kevin helps lead the team in providing the financial control systems, accounting, audit, and tax expertise that are critical to the development of a new venture.
