As rapid developments in the world economy transform tax laws, new and complicated legal challenges emerge. The Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer Tax team is known for its ability to deal effectively with these challenges and to manage complex and precedent-setting tax problems and opportunities critical to US and international transactions. We offer diversified legal transactional resources, as well as the planning, litigation, and regulatory services necessary to address our clients' short- and long-term tax objectives.

Approximately 55 tax attorneys, several of whom have been recognized by Chambers USA, provide experienced representation in all major areas of corporate, partnership, individual, employment, tax-exempt organization, financial products, real estate, REITs, trusts and estates, and transfer tax law. We have a long tradition of advising a diverse client base, including US and international businesses, high net worth individuals, trusts, estates, nonprofit entities, and governments on federal, state, local, and international tax concerns. We work with each of our clients to develop and implement strategies suited to their business and legal objectives.

Our attorneys offer the full range of transactional tax planning services as well as providing counseling in risk management, representation before the IRS, litigation in all federal courts with jurisdiction over tax matters, and appearances before foreign tax agencies. In addition, our attorneys advise clients on new tax legislation and regulations, assist in the development of tax policy, and provide representation before Congress, the Department of the Treasury, and other governmental agencies.

We offer our clients strategic thinking and innovative solutions aimed at resolving matters before our clients incur significant cost. We coordinate teams of legal and other professionals to assist clients with complex tax and business challenges, and we work closely with our clients' in-house and independent advisors in accounting, financial planning, economics, and other disciplines. Should they be required, we provide premier trial and appellate services, and call on the full resources of our firm to support us, including more than 1,000 attorneys working in 13 offices with extensive government regulatory, antitrust, intellectual property, bankruptcy, corporate, and real estate experience.
