Services

Our tax law practice area offers the following services:

Tax Planning – We help clients take proactive steps to minimize tax liability. This includes advice on how to best obtain favorable tax treatment for a specific transaction or on the day-to-day operation of a business. Our tax planning often results in a significant  tax savings.

Compliance – We assist clients in complying with the various rules, regulations and requirements of the IRS and state and local taxing authorities.

Dispute Resolution – We offer aggressive and intelligent representation before the IRS and state and local taxing authorities, including appeals of adverse determinations.

Private Letter Rulings – If you are considering taking part in a business or transaction for which the tax consequences are unclear, we can help you obtain a private letter ruling from the IRS which will allow you to enter into the transaction with confidence that you are in full compliance with the law.

What Makes Us Different

Experience – Our tax attorneys have an especially strong background in accounting, tax and finance. Several of our attorneys have LLMs and our tax group is led by an attorney who previously worked as a CPA at major accounting firms.

We Understand Entrepreneurs – We understand the unique tax needs of closely-held businesses. As a result, we can offer you practical advice on how to increase after-tax income.

Cost Effective – Our expertise matches that of the largest and most prestigious firms in the world. As a result of our smaller size and efficient management, we can do so with a more reasonable billing structure.
