The USLAW NETWORK Tax Law community of attorneys provides clients with access to attorneys with expertise in identifying and assessing tax matters frequently encountered by businesses in a global marketplace. Our network of attorneys understand the importance of balancing tax objectives and efficiencies with business needs and concerns. Clients who use USLAW Tax Law attorneys will be more informed of the issues and opportunities in the constantly changing world of tax law.
WHY CHOOSE USLAW TAX LAW FIRMS?
As a USLAW practice group focused on tax law, our attorneys possess the knowledge and experience to guide clients through the most complex of tax matters. From the initial organization of a business, through its growth and expansion, and upon its divestiture or exit, an understanding of the tax considerations at the onset is necessary. Whether dealing with a transaction, business structuring, business succession planning, or multi-state tax compliance, our member attorneys provide perspective and concise advice so that clients can assess the tax impacts of their transactions and business decisions.
Our members advise on all areas of tax law – federal income taxation; federal transfer tax (i.e., gift, estate, and generation-skipping transfer taxes); employee benefits; international taxation; state and local taxation (e.g., sales and use, franchise taxes and income taxation). Many of our attorneys also represent clients in tax controversy matters during the audit stage and in administrative appeals and judicial proceedings, including before the United States Tax Court.
