State and local governments have stepped up their tax enforcement efforts, conducting audits and investigations, and pursing tax recoveries through litigation. Faced with these challenges, businesses, as well as individuals, need counsel that knows the laws and can help them create a tax plan that limits their tax exposure, assures compliance and helps them accomplish their goals. They also need counsel who can advocate on their behalf in legislative forums and defend their interests before regulatory bodies and in courts at all levels.
