Our tax lawyers provide companies and partnerships of all sizes, as well as tax-exempt clients, with an integrated approach to tax advice. With a broad range of skill sets, we focus on four major disciplines: advising on transactions; day-to-day counseling on substantive and tax planning and compliance issues; resolving disputes with taxing authorities and in court; and helping clients obtain private or public guidance from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the US Department of the Treasury.

Our team, which includes lawyers with high-level service in the Treasury Department and the US Department of Justice, advises clients on international and US federal, state, and local tax exposures associated with pending transactions and ongoing business operations. We help clients successfully resolve ongoing tax controversy and litigation matters. Clients rely on us for integrated controversy, planning, and transactional advice to produce practical and efficient solutions to often highly complex tax issues.

Our tax lawyers are located throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, and are leading practitioners recognized by Chambers USA, The Legal 500, Euromoney’s Guide to the World’s Leading Tax Advisors, and other peer and client rankings.

In addition to the lawyers in the tax practice, Morgan Lewis has tax lawyers in related practices, such as white collar litigation and government investigations, employee benefits and executive compensation, and personal law. We work closely with the firm’s corporate lawyers when counseling clients on domestic and international mergers, acquisitions, spin-offs, buyouts, restructurings, and securities offerings. On a day-to-day basis, we also partner with our clients’ in-house tax personnel to address ongoing issues, satisfy compliance obligations, and prepare for potential controversies.
