Income tax planning is an integral part of structuring business and personal transactions. Robinson Brog's tax lawyers are engaged in analyzing business transactions to obtain the most efficient tax results for our clients. This work includes business mergers and acquisitions, corporate divisions, tax-free reorganizations, stock and asset sales, and tax issues relating to partnerships and limited liability companies and their owners. Our income tax work includes federal, state and local, and international tax planning, including tax treaty interpretation. We also assist certified public accountants in analyzing difficult and complex income tax issues. Our tax lawyers work closely with Robinson Brog's corporate, real estate, and trusts and estates lawyers.
Robinson Brog’s tax lawyers are also experienced in tax controversy and tax compliance matters, including work on federal, state and local audits, United States Tax Court litigation and appeals, petitions to the New York State Division of Tax Appeals and subsequent court proceedings; and federal and state offers in compromise. Our goal in tax controversy matters is to present the strongest arguments under the tax law in support of our clients' positions, while at the same time seeking the most efficient resolution of disputes with the taxing authorities.
The members of our Tax Department are also actively engaged in professional activities such as lecturing and writing on tax matters.
