Paying taxes is a reality, but without qualified legal counsel, paying more than the law demands is likely. In serving both businesses and individuals, our tax attorneys labor to minimize each client's tax liability within a labyrinth of complex law.
Corporate and Personal Taxation
If a business is to achieve its objectives for growth or development, careful tax planning is vital. If an individual is to prepare for a comfortable future, proper legal guidance is essential. Tax attorneys are trained to recognize and understand the implications of tax law, legislative history and case analysis—a structurally sound platform upon which to launch a tax-reduction strategy for any client, whether a multinational corporation or an individual. Each attorney in this practice area gained experience in business operations and management before or while practicing law. All draw upon their collective experience to manage the complexities of the tax laws confronting our clients.
The organizations we serve are large and small, domestic and foreign, publicly and privately held, not-for-profit entities, partnerships, joint ventures, S corporations, limited liability companies and sole proprietorships. They range from accounting firms to insurance companies, trade associations to charities and private foundations. Our attorneys engage in a wide variety of transactions with tax implications on behalf of these commercial clients, such as corporate restructuring, business finance, asset protection, acquisitions, divestitures, structured financing and dispute settlement, often rendering the tax opinions necessary for success.
Only after considering a companys core business needs does a member of our taxation team prepare a strategy to maximize the value of the companys capital. Only after exploring an individuals aspirations does a team member begin formulating a suitable tax plan—wealth accrual and preservation the tandem goal. Managing a sophisticated domestic and international tax practice, we feel qualified to handle all taxation needs.
