About Us

Monica Langfeldt has 18 years of legal experience

After graduating from law school Monica joined PriceWaterhouseCoopers in New York City, where she advised multinationals on their tax structure, she then spent a few years with Kaye Scholer, also in New York City, while pursuing her LL.M in Taxation at NYU before moving west to finish her LL.M at UW. Upon completing of her LL.M, Monica joined Miller Nash, a premier northwest law firm, where she practiced in the area of corporate law, international, federal, state and local tax law as well as provided guidance to numerous tax-exempt and for-profit organizations. She most recently was a partner at Garvey Schubert Barer, an international law firm, headquartered in Seattle, Washington. At Garvey Schubert Barer, Monica honed her corporate counsel skills as well as expanded her knowledge of all areas of the tax law.

Monica grew up in Norway and speaks fluent Norwegian and is active in the local Norwegian community in Seattle. She is also an Adjunct Professor at Seattle University School of Law, where she teaches international tax law. In her spare time, she tries to fit in as much hiking, running, skiing, snowboarding and cooking as she can manage, all to the delight of her husband and four-legged companions Scout and Indie.
