We understand that taxes have a direct impact on your bottom line, and we work to find creative and practical ways to minimize the impact of taxes of all types. With over 70 lawyers—including preeminent tax practitioners recognized by both their peers and by leading legal industry publications—who devote their practices solely to tax issues, we are able to provide innovative and comprehensive advice on planning, investments, transactions, controversy and litigation, and lobby projects.

We also work in conjunction with other lawyers in the firm to ensure that tax considerations are integrated into our clients’ business and transactional projects. Our clients include Fortune 500 companies, start-up companies, individuals, and others, enabling us to share with you a wide-ranging breadth and depth of experience.
