The Group is skilled in achieving reductions in property taxes, obtaining tax abatements and exemptions for qualified taxpayers, and negotiating state and local incentive packages for commercial clients and nonprofits entities. Because of the Group's substantial experience in these matters and our clients' need for consistent national coordination of such a program, this practice area has become national and international in scope. Recently the group concluded the successful appeal of the taxation of a nuclear power station in an action that may have been the largest tax appeal ever brought in the United States. The Group also employs its valuation and negotiation skills in the vigorous defense of condemnation actions by state and local authorities.
