Our tax practice has a single goal: to help our clients accomplish their business and personal objectives in the most tax-efficient manner possible.
Our tax practice includes most aspects of federal taxation including: advising on and/or structuring domestic and international transactions such as acquisitions, divestitures, tax-free reorganizations, spinoffs, joint ventures, leveraged buyouts, debt and equity offerings, and lending and financing transactions; structuring and forming private investment vehicles including private equity and hedge funds and their general partners, managers and advisors; advising tax-exempt organizations (including private foundations, charitable giving and trade associations); the taxation of compensation; and the U.S. taxation of international transactions.
We advise clients on matters of state and local taxation, including state and local personal and corporate income taxes, franchise taxes and business privilege taxes as well as sales and use taxes, transfer taxes, and real estate taxes.
We also are representing clients before federal, state and local taxing authorities, and we have a solid track record of success in securing favorable rulings at federal, state and local levels. We regularly represent individuals and businesses under audit by the IRS and state and local taxing authorities, and enjoy an enviable record of success in civil and criminal tax litigation.
