His areas of practice include mergers and acquisitions, real estate, tax matters, family law, purchases and sales, litigation, licensing, corporate and partnership structuring and reorganizations, international trade, tax and estate planning.

“Innovation and leadership being hallmarks of Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation’s approach, I am honored to join the board of an organization working hard every day to improve the quality of life for Northern Nevada and Lake Tahoe regions,” Krasner said in the release. “Our firm also shares the belief we must give back in the communities in which we live and make them stronger and better for all.”

Established in 1996, the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation, according to the press release, is dedicated to strengthening communities by offering simple, effective charitable giving options, supporting quality programs, and connecting people to the causes they care about.
