Every business transaction involves taxes, and this makes the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) a potential party to every deal. Our tax lawyers provide experienced, confidential counsel to help reduce your tax burden and defend against claims by federal, state and local tax authorities. In a confusing landscape of complex and ever-changing tax laws, we provide seasoned, practical guidance to help you capitalize on opportunities that may save your business money.

Our broad and deep tax practice involves planning for a variety of business transactions, including the formation of business entities of all types; taxable and tax-free corporate acquisitions and divestitures; public securities offerings; joint ventures and entity conversions; and transactions involving partnerships, limited liability companies (LLC's) and S corporations. Our lawyers also have prior experience working within major national and international law and accounting firms.

We frequently represent taxpayers in adversarial proceedings before the IRS. We also have a long track record in the state capital of resolving disputes over state and local income, franchise, sales, use and property taxes.
