Louisville Business First Honors Wyatt’s Michael Fine with “Forty Under 40” Award

Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs, LLP is pleased to announce that Michael N. Fine has been selected by Louisville Business First for its “Forty Under 40” Award.

According to Business First, “Forty Under 40 is a select group of up-and-comers who are on the leading edge in their occupations and share their time and talents in community service.” More than 500 people were nominated this year for this honor. Award winners are selected by a panel of judges from the Louisville area business community who believe the recipients “demonstrated that they are and will play a vital role in the development of Greater Louisville.” Mr. Fine was one of only two lawyers from major law firms who received this award. Franklin Jelsma, the Firm’s managing partner, shared that although Mr. Fine and his family moved to Louisville only a few years ago, “he is already having a major impact in the nonprofit community – advising large health care entities, educational foundations and others.”

Mr. Fine is a Partner in the Firm’s Health Care Service Team. He joined Wyatt in 2015 after serving as Co-Chair of the Tax Exemption Affinity Group at McDermott Will & Emery, LLP in its Chicago and Washington D.C. offices. His practice spans the full range of nonprofit and tax-exempt organization legal issues, advising public charities, private foundations, boards and donors. He is a frequent speaker and author, and has written numerous publications, including articles on Section 501(r)’s requirements for tax-exempt hospitals and how the 2017 federal tax reform legislation impacts nonprofit organizations. Mr. Fine serves as Chair of the American Health Lawyers Association’s Tax & Finance Practice Group, is a graduate of the Leadership Louisville Center’s Bingham Fellows Class of 2017 and co-created Live In Lou’s City Champs Ambassador Program, part of the Metro Chamber of Commerce’s talent attraction, retention and development efforts.
