Miller & Chevalier was founded in 1920 as the first federal tax practice in the U.S. and has successfully represented our corporate clients in all facets of federal tax law for nearly a century. Over the past several years, we have represented more than 40 percent of the Fortune 100 and approximately 30 percent of the Global 100.

We provide comprehensive tax representation for our clients. The firm’s tax policy practice works for our clients’ interests before lawmakers and the Treasury Department. Our tax consulting practice handles the U.S. federal tax aspects of complex multinational transactions. Our tax controversy practice resolves clients’ most difficult problems through IRS administrative processes. And our firm has experienced tax litigators and has litigated many of the most significant tax cases on record.

Our tax department includes many lawyers with experience at the IRS, the Treasury Department, the Department of Justice, the United States Tax Court, and on Capitol Hill. Our tax lawyers have a broad range of technical experience spanning financial products and structured finance, international tax, tax accounting, corporate tax, partnership tax, transfer pricing, criminal tax, tax policy, tax credits and incentives, taxation of natural resources, and withholding tax issues. We apply our technical skills in multiple venues: corporate boardrooms, the halls of Treasury and Congress, the IRS National Office, IRS Appeals and Examination offices throughout the country, the Tax Court, the Court of Federal Claims, multiple federal district and circuit courts, and the Supreme Court.
