Tax is more than a mid-April issue to most businesses; it is a bottom-line concern. Our tax clients include closely held businesses as well as international industry leaders. In all cases, we help our clients structure their business and transactions to minimize tax liability while ensuring compliance with the various local, state and federal tax regimes.

Our tax attorneys advise on all types of transactions and tax-related matters, including:
  • Entity formation and structure.
  • Mergers and acquisitions.
  • Domestic and international joint ventures.
  • Executive compensation and benefits.
  • Investment and research credits.
  • Tax-exempt organizations.
  • Employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs).
  • Tax-qualified retirement plans.

We also advise clients on tax controversies, including audits and litigation before the Internal Revenue Service, state and local taxing authorities, the United States Tax Court and Oregon Tax Court, among others.
