With the labyrinth of United States and foreign tax laws and international tax treaties, you need advisors with substantive experience who can point out international tax issues and configure your international operations to maximize your business and thus, remain competitive in the global marketplace.
Polsinelli International Tax attorneys have developed that experience by assessing United States and foreign-based multinational corporations, joint ventures, and individuals in the design and implementation of tax efficient global finance, intellectual property, trading/distribution structures and U.S./foreign tax audits and controversies.
With experience handling international tax transactions in Washington, D.C., Polsinelli’s International Tax team has the in-depth knowledge and skills to handle the most complex international tax matters. Our long-standing relationship with the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Treasury Department provides a distinct advantage to our clients.
