Litigation Support

In today's complex environment, disputes sometimes result in litigation or threatened litigation, often involving financial issues.

State and Local Taxes

Recent advances in technology allow states to share a broad range of information, enabling them to identify businesses subject to taxes outside their home state. Because states do not utilize a standard tax system, multi-state taxpayers must understand the impact of their investments and business activities in each state.

We can help you manage state tax filing requirements, and with advance knowledge and planning, we can offer practical suggestions that could reduce or eliminate state tax costs.

Tax Compliance and Consulting

Due to the increasing complexity and constantly changing nature of our tax laws, it is more critical than ever to have professional advisors working to develop and implement strategies to minimize tax costs.

Whether selecting the best entity in which to conduct business, planning for the purchase or sale of a business, taking advantage of newly enacted deductions or credits, or any of a number of other tax saving opportunities, our professionals are proactive in looking for customized solutions for our clients.

We also assist in preparing tax returns and serving as a trusted liaison with federal and state taxing authorities.
