Troutman Sanders’ tax attorneys provide sophisticated, practical, and client sensitive advice designed to achieve our clients’ tax objectives at a competitive price. Our tax attorneys have experience in the complete range of federal income tax issues that arise in planning and executing complex business transactions, including acquisitions, dispositions, joint ventures, financings, and restructurings. In addition to advising our clients on corporate, partnership, and state and local tax matters, we partner with our compensation and benefits attorneys to provide income tax advice on workforce compensation issues experienced by companies undergoing change.

To most of our clients, tax controversies are a distraction from their normal business operations. Accordingly, our tax attorneys provide comprehensive advice on all aspects of tax examinations, administrative appeals, and, if necessary, tax litigation, allowing our clients to remain focused on running their businesses. Troutman Sanders tax litigation attorneys combine their substantive knowledge of the tax law with their experience in court to bring a unique perspective to litigating a tax dispute. Oftentimes, we will closely team with our experienced trial attorneys in a manner that brings the highest level of expertise in reaching the most favorable results. Our tax attorneys handle cases in U.S. Tax Court, the Court of Federal Claims, the Federal District Courts, and various state and local tribunals, including appeals from all of these venues.

Successfully resolving complex tax problems often requires the input of multiple skill sets and disciplines. Our “one firm” approach to problem solving combines the resources of all of our firm’s practices, such as real estate, financial restructuring and insolvency, corporate, and securities, regardless of geographic location, to help our clients practically and economically achieve their business objectives and resolve their tax disputes.
