Our clients rely on us to identify and navigate critical tax issues and related enforcement efforts. We contest extended tax audits before the IRS Examination Division, negotiate tax controversy settlements with IRS Appeals Offices nationwide and obtain technical advice from the IRS National Office. We represent large public and privately-held multinational corporations subject to the IRS’s Large Business and international coordinated examination and industry specialization programs.
