Fredrikson shareholder Masha M. Yevzelman has been selected as an honoree for the Minnesota Lawyer Top Women in Law awards. Minnesota Lawyer Top Women in Law celebrates the outstanding achievements of exceptional women in the legal community.
Yevzelman represents public and private companies, trusts, estates and high-net-worth individuals in complex tax disputes. She handles all stages of tax controversies—voluntary disclosures, audits, administrative appeals, tax court, district court and appellate litigation. Yevzelman also chairs Fredrikson’s Tax Disputes & Litigation Group. In addition to her practice, Yevzelman leads efforts to promote and support women at Fredrikson and in the community. For example, Yevzelman founded a Twin Cities networking group for women in state in local tax, Worth our SALT; and is a co-founder of a similar national networking group for women through the American Bar Association Tax Section’s State and Local Tax Committee called Women in SALT Coffee Connection.
Minnesota Lawyer Top Women in Law honors the exceptional educators, trailblazers, role models and public-service lawyers who work in the trenches as well as attorneys who have dedicated their careers to nonprofit work, private practice and in-house counsel. These women have become leaders in their practice areas and are instrumental to their companies’ success. The honorees were selected based on the core principles of leadership, professionalism, accomplishment and passion for making a difference.
