Tax Controversies

We represent individuals, businesses, trusts, and estates in disputes with governmental taxing authorities at the federal, state, and local levels.  Our practice in this area encompasses representation before administrative agencies, such as the Internal Revenue Service and the Ohio Department of Taxation, litigation in trial courts, including the United States Tax Court, federal district courts, and the Ohio Board of Tax Appeals, and advocacy before federal and state courts of appeals and the Supreme Court of Ohio.

Our attorneys are skilled at working with taxing authorities, at all levels, to achieve reasonable resolutions of disputes without the need for litigation.  We believe that all reasonable settlement options should be reviewed and, if appropriate, pursued prior to the full implementation of a litigation strategy.  Where litigation is necessary, however, we have the significant experience and depth that allow our attorneys to prosecute or defend against all kinds of federal, state and local tax claims.
