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.
