Taxation

Man doing taxes

The firm’s tax practice offers expertise in today’s complex tax system, including federal, state, and local tax planning, employee benefits, and the resolution of tax controversy issues for individuals and business entities.  Members of our commercial practice regularly advise clients on the tax aspects of corporate transactions (i.e., mergers, acquisitions, and general restructuring) as well as financing and debt workouts.  Tax considerations often drive the form and structure of a transaction and we pride ourselves on delivering sound legal advice in this arena.  We work with our clients to analyze their specific needs and develop a tax strategy to maximize their bottom line.

We are often asked to assist our clients with the formation of non-profit organizations as well as the filing of the required documentation in order for that organization to obtain tax-exempt status on a federal level.  Once the tax-exempt status is obtained, we provide general corporate and tax advice to the organization to ensure its compliance with all applicable rules and regulations.

A significant portion of our practice involves representation before the Internal Revenue Service and other state and local taxing agencies.  When claims cannot be resolved through the Internal Revenue Service administrative appeals process, the firm represents its clients before the United States Tax Court, United States District Courts, the Court of Federal Claims, and the United States Courts of Appeals.
