Tax Controversy

Our federal tax and state and local tax attorneys have joined their technical tax experience with the Firm’s experienced litigation attorneys to form the Tax Controversy Practice providing a team approach to representing clients in federal, state and local tax controversy matters.

Federal Tax Controversy and Other Internal Revenue Service Matters
We routinely represent taxpayers in matters involving the Internal Revenue Service. We have the technical and procedural experience necessary to successfully request private letter rulings.  Our attorneys frequently represent clients before the IRS audit including drafting and negotiating protests before the appeals office. We represent clients in litigation before all federal trial and appellate courts including the United States Tax Court.

State and Local Tax Controversy Matters
We have national experience in state tax controversy matters. Our attorneys represent clients in state tax audits to formulate state and multistate audit strategies and negotiate successful audit settlements.  Our attorneys represent clients before state tax administrative agencies and state judicial proceedings from trial through the appellate level.  We also work with clients to formulate legislative and regulatory solutions to state and local tax issues.
