Income Tax Litigation
Our tax litigation practice involves representing taxpayers in civil and administrative tax controversies at all levels. We regularly represent taxpayers in civil matters before the Internal Revenue Service Examination and Appeals Divisions. When a tax dispute cannot be resolved at these administrative levels, we are prepared to litigate the dispute before the U.S. Tax Court, U.S. District Courts, U.S. Claims Court, U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, the U.S. Courts of Appeals, and the Supreme Court. Our tax litigation attorneys have served as counsel of record to taxpayers in hundreds of cases filed in various federal courts with jurisdiction over tax controversies. A number of these cases have resulted in published opinions of the court.
To ensure a comprehensive approach to tax disputes, our tax litigators routinely collaborate with clients’ accountants, in-house counsel, and financial advisors. All of our tax litigators possess both a substantive knowledge of tax law and a detailed understanding of the procedural issues involved in contested tax matters and administrative appeals. This organization of substantive and procedural knowledge enables our tax litigators to develop creative strategies for resolving sophisticated tax controversies.
