Governments around the world are implementing policies that demand greater financial transparency and seek higher tax revenues from corporate taxpayers. Navigating the evolving global tax environment requires experience, bench strength and a deep understanding of the practical impact on multinational companies and investors.
As trusted tax counsel to leading multinational companies for more than five decades, our Global Tax Practice is one of the most highly regarded tax groups in the world. Ranked Band 1 by Chambers Global for our work in the US, Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific, clients and industry peers recognize the high quality of the tax advice we provide in transactions worldwide, as well as in global tax policy, transfer pricing, indirect taxes, dispute resolution and wealth management matters.
Unlike accounting firms, our tax litigators can represent clients in all phases of tax disputes and have successfully defended clients in some of the largest tax disputes on record. With 950 tax practitioners — lawyers, economists and advisers — in more than 40 countries, we collaborate across borders and specialties to stay abreast of changing tax laws, practices and dispute resolution techniques around the world. Our unsurpassed global coverage enables us to help clients design, implement and defend tax strategies for their international operations and transactions everywhere they operate.
