Almost 60 Years at the Forefront of Tax Law: Results, Knowledge, Experience

What defines a tax attorney you can rely on as one of your most trusted advisors? First is results. Our attorneys use their knowledge and experience to employ targeted strategies designed to bring results at every level in your transaction and in your interaction with taxing authorities. Second is knowledge of your business. Our tax attorneys learn your business – what makes it tick and what makes it unique –so that your approach to tax is integrated with your approach to business (or personal) success and growth. Finally is experience. We understand that tax planning effects more than just your bottom line; it affects your business operations. Our attorneys have the experience necessary to guide you in making strategic decisions.

Our tax attorneys are thought leaders who regularly write and speak in their areas of expertise. Many of our attorneys have written Tax Management Portfolios, which are widely recognized and highly regarded as an indispensable resource for tax practitioners.

In addition to our experience as authors, our tax attorneys have served as technical advisors on the portfolio series from its inception almost 60 years ago. Our tax attorneys work with authors from around the United States and abroad to provide timely and sophisticated analysis, application and interpretation of the Internal Revenue Code and the rulings and court decisions that govern the administration of tax laws. Our work on the Tax Management Portfolios helps our tax professionals to stay on the forefront of tax law and are regularly (and uniquely) connected with other prominent tax professionals.
