Vorys announced today that William Noe, an attorney with nearly 20 years of experience in real estate and real estate-related taxation matters, has joined the firm’s property tax team in Texas. Noe has experience in all areas of Texas property tax, including market and equal and uniform value appeals, personal property tax appeals, delinquent tax suits, exemption qualification and appeals, and economic development incentives. Noe’s practice includes representing clients in property tax appeals to Texas district courts and, if necessary, in subsequent appeals to Texas appellate courts and the Texas Supreme Court.
“William comes to Vorys with significant experience across the wide spectrum of Texas real and personal property tax matters,” said Nicholas Ray, chair of the Vorys real property tax group. “Before he became a lawyer, William worked as commercial real estate agent. This experience gives him a unique perspective among practitioners in our field. I am confident he will be a valuable member of our nationwide property tax practice.”
Before graduating with a J.D. from St. Mary’s University School of Law, Noe spent several years working as a commercial real estate agent in a multidisciplinary real estate service firm’s brokerage department. In this role, he had the opportunity to work closely with market participants and other departments in the firm including the development, architecture and property management departments.
“Vorys is an excellent Am Law 200 firm with a team-focused approach to the practice of law. They are the law firm with a nationwide property tax practice assisting clients in all 50 states. As a property tax attorney, Vorys’ unique position and their capabilities are very appealing to me,” said Noe. “I’m excited to assist with the expansion of Vorys’ Texas property tax practice.”
Noe has represented clients with a wide variety of property types including corporate campuses, manufacturing facilities, retail portfolios, hotel portfolios, national banks, special use properties, distribution facilities, apartment portfolios, health care properties, medical office buildings, skilled nursing facilities, vacant land and business personal property.
