Our tax attorneys have experience in all tax areas, including individual, corporate, partnership, gift, estate, trust, sales and use, and real and personal property taxation.
On the proactive side, our practice advises on the practical tax implications of a wide array of transactions and restructurings. We frequently assist clients with wealth and estate planning and administration, including preparation of fiduciary returns.
When tax authorities become involved, we provide audit defense, negotiate and litigate tax disputes with the Internal Revenue Service, the North Carolina Department of Revenue and various local governments. Our tax attorneys handle appeals through various federal and North Carolina administrative agencies, and tax litigation before the United States Tax Court and North Carolina courts.
Our close collaboration with other firm practice groups, such as the litigation or wills, estates and trusts team, allows us to provide knowledgeable, well-rounded counsel on clients' business and individual tax issues. Additionally, two of our tax attorneys are also Certified Public Accountants (CPAs).
