We counsel clients on the most tax-efficient way to structure and consummate a transaction. We recognize in this competitive marketplace tax minimization is a professional necessity. Our attorneys partner with our clients to minimize their effective tax rates.
In addition, we assist clients with compliance, including representation before the Internal Revenue Service and various state and local tax agencies.
