McCarter & English's Tax Team skillfully represents clients in federal and state tax controversies at the audit, administrative and appeal levels. The Group's attorneys are experienced in the procedural and strategic aspects of litigation and the complexities of tax law. While we seek to resolve controversies via administrative appeal or negotiated settlement, we also have the experience to effectively litigate tax matters to the extent that the situation dictates. Our attorneys have successfully represented clients at the audit and administrative appeal levels; before state tax, trial, appellate and state supreme courts; and before the United States Tax Court, district courts and courts of claims.

As part of our multi-state tax litigation practice, McCarter & English's attorneys represent clients in tax audits and before administrative appeal boards across the country. If it is necessary to file an appeal in court, a McCarter & English attorney often is admitted in that jurisdiction. If no McCarter & English attorneys are admitted in a particular jurisdiction, the firm will represent the client with the assistance of local counsel.
