Washington, D.C., September 18, 2015 -- Miller & Chevalier Chartered is pleased to announce that the firm was recognized last night by International Tax Review (ITR) at the publication's Americas Tax Awards 2015, held in New York, NY. The firm was named "Americas Tax Policy Firm of the Year," marking the third occasion the firm has received this distinction in the past four years. Tax Associates Jessica T. Ornsby and Lisandra Ortiz accepted the award on behalf of the firm.
The International Tax Review's Americas Tax Awards 2015 recognize the leading tax and transfer pricing firms in 21 jurisdictions globally. Selection for the awards is based on a combination of research for ITR's directories with the broad-scale innovation, complexity and impact of work conducted by a firm in the past year.
"We have a long history of tax policy insight as our firm was founded as the first federal tax practice in the country. We are proud to be recognized by ITR once again for our distinction in the pursuit of tax policy goals on behalf of our clients for nearly a century," said Marc J. Gerson, Vice Chair of the Tax department and head of the firm's Tax Policy practice. "We utilize our knowledge of the legislative and administrative processes and our established relationships with members of Congress, the Administration and their staffs to assist our clients in achieving their tax policy goals."
"We are thrilled to be recognized on the global stage for the tax strength we are able to provide to our clients," said George A. Hani, Chair of the firm's Tax department. "We once again thank International Tax Review for recognizing these efforts."
