Since its founding in 1920 as the first federal tax practice in the U.S., Miller & Chevalier has been successfully resolving major tax controversies for the world's largest multinational corporations. Our tax lawyers combine deep technical tax knowledge with a wealth of experience in all facets of controversy and litigation.
We advise our clients on all procedural and strategic aspects of controversies as they evolve, including responding to information document requests, complying with formal document requests, quashing summonses, controlling statutes of limitation, establishing document retention procedures, identifying and protecting privileged documents, and dealing with specific audit adjustments proposed by examining agents.
Some clients seek to resolve disputes short of litigation. And when it comes to those disputes, we are experienced in all forms of administrative dispute resolution, from Fast Track Settlement to Early Referral to Appeals, traditional Appeals, Post-Appeals Mediation, the Compliance Agreement Program (CAP), the Pre-Filing Agreement program, and Advance Pricing Agreements.
But some controversies call for litigation, and when they do we defend our clients with skill and determination. Over the last two decades, Miller & Chevalier lawyers have litigated more than one hundred tax cases in the federal courts. In recent years, we have taken cases to trial in the Tax Court, the Court of Federal Claims, and in district court. And the subject matter of our litigation experience is broad; recent cases have involved tax accounting, cost basis and valuation, treaty benefits, tax credits, interest netting, and transfer pricing. We also have significant experience and a successful track record in appeals to the circuit courts and the United States Supreme Court.
