Representing multinational clients in controversies with tax authorities is a major focus of our Global Tax Practice. Our lawyers provide strategic advice, assistance and advocacy at every stage of a controversy — from the audit, where it is important to control the flow of information and development of issues, through the dispute resolution process, where a persuasive and logical presentation of the case merits is key. Our lawyers, including many who have worked in various government agencies, are seasoned in the use of alternative dispute resolution techniques and litigation in courts. They not only understand procedural rules and substantive issues but bring to the table creative approaches to problem solving.
Tax issues and audits increasingly have a global focus, and require global solutions. Our tax controversy lawyers routinely practice in national courts that address tax issues, and have handled many of the most important domestic and international litigation matters in numerous jurisdictions, including the United States, Canada, and various countries in Europe, Latin America, and Asia Pacific.
