Reed Smith’s State Tax Team, recognized as one of the United States’ leading state and local tax practices, advises major corporate clients in all jurisdictions on multi-state tax controversies, tax planning, and the tax aspects of mergers and acquisitions. Because our lawyers focus exclusively on state tax and are not generalists, our clients benefit from our ability to navigate and resolve multi-state tax issues successfully. We have experience handling state tax matters before administrative appeal boards, tax tribunals, and courts in virtually every state.
Our experience extends to the trial and all appellate levels, including the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as matters before administrative appeal boards and tax tribunals. Clients have retained us to represent them in some of the most significant state tax matters arising in recent times, including cases involving intangible holding companies, taxation of software, and constitutional limitations on states’ power to tax.
Whether prevailing in litigation, negotiating favorable settlements, or pursuing opportunities for immediate and future tax savings, we approach each state tax challenge with the resources of a global law firm and the focus of a boutique.
