Interviews with NABL Members from NABL News
Ian W. Bearden, Modrall, Sperling, Roehl, Harris & Sisk, P.A., Albuquerque, NM
Tell us something about yourself…
I live in New Mexico where you can go skiing and then play tennis or golf in the same day, so I spend a lot of my free time outside in the mountains, on the courts, and on the course. I have three rescued racing greyhounds –Wendell, George, and Louise—who love that I work from home more now.
What encouraged you to join NABL and register for The Workshop: Hybrid 2021?
Over the past several years, I have enjoyed working on various tax aspects of public finance transactions and have recently had the opportunity to take on a larger role in a number of deals. I am excited to pursue a more full-scope public finance practice. I joined NABL and signed up for The Workshop, so that I can connect with other practitioners and continue to learn the ropes of this practice area.
Which topic(s) are you looking forward to learning at the conference?
My background is primarily in tax law, so while I am excited to learn from folks on the forefront of public finance tax, I am really looking forward to learning more about the securities law aspects of the practice.
What’s the best piece of advice you have received?
Owning your mistakes is the fastest route to fixing them.
