Overview

With more than 80 tax lawyers resident in 10 offices across the United States and Europe, our deep bench of tax team members represents clients in virtually all major industries (including technology, consumer products, energy, life sciences, banking/finance, and transportation) and across all aspects of our national tax practice: from controversy and litigation to planning and transactional support. Our tax lawyers are market leaders in a large number of the specialty areas of our broad national tax practice, including transfer pricing, tax controversy, transactional tax matters (such as tax planning and tax structuring), partnership taxation, inbound and outbound international planning, benefits and payroll tax, tax-exempt organizations, state and local tax, and the research and development tax credit.

We represent a full range of clients, including multinational corporations, partnerships, estates, individuals, and tax-exempt organizations. When administrative resolution is not possible, our clients trust us to litigate their most significant disputes, and we have litigated an array of large, complex, cutting-edge tax issues. Our team—which includes former US Department of Justice tax litigators, international tax counsel for the US Department of the Treasury, and IRS Chief Counsel attorneys including an IRS Chief Counsel—brings substantive tax knowledge, strategic insight, and decades of experience to these important matters.
