Washington, D.C., November 1, 2013 -- Miller & Chevalier Chartered announced today that the firm's Tax practice received two top rankings in International Tax Review's (ITR's) 2014 directories. The rankings include:
World Tax 2014 - Washington, DC - Tier 2
World Transfer Pricing 2014 - National - Tier 1
ITR researchers and journalists interviewed corporate tax and transfer pricing directors to compile the tiers of leading firms in World Transfer Pricing 2014 and World Tax 2014. The corporate interviewees, chosen from a representative sample of clients, were anonymously asked questions regarding advice received and opinions of their individual advisers, as well as their teams.
The firm's Tax practice as a whole was distinguished by its inclusion in World Tax 2014. Strong client praise is a hallmark of the directory's criteria for ranking. Miller & Chevalier's lawyers "understand how to work with the US government and have reached some very good results in tax controversy matters," according to World Tax 2014's client feedback.
"Miller & Chevalier brings together lawyers who are widely renowned for their transfer pricing expertise," World Transfer Pricing 2014 said, highlighting several of the firm's lawyers within the first-tier ranking. Rocco Femia is "recognised by his peers for his work on complex and high-value transfer pricing matters. Alex Zakupowsky's clients celebrate him for his technical expertise and negotiating skills, while Kevin Kenworthy is known for his skill as a litigator."
These rankings follow recent accolades at ITR's Americas Tax Awards in September, where the firm was awarded "Americas Tax Policy Firm of the Year" for the second year running, and "Washington, DC Tax Firm of the Year."
