The offices of Miami attorney and accountant Lewis Freeman were raided Friday by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the latest step in the high-profile figure’s troubles with the government. The reason for the search remains sealed because criminal charges have not been filed. Freeman, who often serves as a receiver for bankrupt businesses and investors, sued the Internal Revenue Service in August over a $4.5 million civil assessment against him, but Fort Lauderdale tax litigator Martin Press, a partner with Gunster, said it’s unusual for the FBI to be raiding an office of someone involved in tax disputes.
