Virtually every business decision, real estate transaction, personal or financial venture is directly affected by changes in the tax laws. No transaction should be completed today without consideration of tax consequences.
The firm's taxation experience includes acquisitive and divisive corporate reorganizations, partnership taxation, tax-free exchanges, optimizing capital gain treatment, deferred compensation planning, and other federal and state tax planning arrangements. The firm also has an active tax dispute resolution practice favorably resolving controversies with the Internal Revenue Service and the Massachusetts Department of Revenue on behalf of our clients.
Our tax attorneys advise and guide clients through a myriad of federal and state tax issues involved in tax-free corporate reorganizations, partnership structure and special allocations, selection of forms of organization, tax-free exchanges, compensation and employee benefits, acquisitions and divestitures, liquidations, tax audits and compliance issues.
Our tax attorneys collaborate with the firm's litigation group on tax issues associated with dispute resolution, and with estate planning and real estate attorneys on interrelated casework. As the tax laws continue to change, it is crucial for our business and tax attorneys to be involved early in the planning process. Clients who are able to make informed choices receive the benefit, not the burden, of the tax law.
We realize the necessity, not only to be aware of existing tax laws, but also to remain abreast of pending state and federal legislation that may affect a client's interests. Being informed and responsive can make the critical difference in assuring minimal risk and delivering value and results.
