Tax Contests

Successful resolution to tax controversies often begins long before reaching an IRS appeals officer. We routinely advise clients during audits on responding to IDRs, handing IRS agents and developing audits strategies.

We regularly represent clients before the IRS and state taxing authorities to resolve and defend a variety of tax disputes. If litigation is necessary, we are able to bring our deep litigation experience to achieve the best possible outcome for the client.

Tax Planning

Most commercial transactions involve tax considerations. We routinely advise clients on how to minimize the state and federal tax liability associated with their business activities. Working with clients’ accounting and financial professionals, we strive to develop strategies that add value and help to bridge the gaps necessary to complete transactions.

Tax Liability Resolution

Dealing with the IRS can be a daunting and unsettling task. It helps to have exceptional counsel by your side. We routinely negotiate with the IRS and state taxing authorities on behalf of clients to reduce liability from unpaid taxes, penalties and interest, sometimes for a fraction of the amount owed.
