“I don’t think there can be a more interesting white-collar job than the practice of law. Every day brings new issues. It’s never boring.”

Vaughn Ramsey provides his clients with over thirty years of legal experience in business representation with a focus on taxation. This experience allows Vaughn to provide insights into matters that not every lawyer would recognize.  He advises clients on taxable and non-taxable business sales and acquisitions, entity formation, private placements, joint ventures, general contract matters, and other related transactions, as well as taxpayer disputes with the Internal Revenue Service and the North Carolina Department of Revenue.  While he takes his work very seriously, Vaughn does like to have fun on the job when possible.

In addition to his legal knowledge and dependable work, Vaughn’s clients appreciate his responsiveness, willingness to lend a hand professionally and personally, his dry sense-of-humor, and his willingness to refer a matter elsewhere if it falls outside the firm’s expertise.

Vaughn is a frequent speaker on state and federal tax issues, and has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America, NC SuperLawyers, NC Legal Elite, has been awarded the NC CPA Association 5.0 Speaker Award, and is a former member of the board of the J. Nelson Young UNC Tax Institute.

During law school, Vaughn was inducted in Order of the Coif and also served on the North Carolina Law Review. Prior to joining Tuggle Duggins in 1985, Vaughn was an associate with Chadbourne & Parke in New York City.

Recent Representative Matters

  • Represented a client in closing a $70M transaction on December 31 with only four weeks’ notice.
  • Represented an 89-year-old loan guarantor with 4 impoverished co-guarantors. After a year, the client received a favorable workout protecting his assets while getting maximum contributions from the other guarantors and a material loan write down.

Outside of the Office

Vaughn is active in various matters relating to Downtown Greensboro, and he was recently appointed to the Greensboro Board of Adjustment. When he is not in the office, Vaughn enjoys road biking, but can more likely be found swimming or working out at the local Y. He enjoys traveling, frequently gathers with friends, and exhibits his culinary skills by cooking Indian food.
