Greenberg Traurig – Tax Practice
To stay competitive in today's global marketplace, international companies must seek out greater efficiency in their tax planning and compliance, including coordinating tax decisions from country to country. For U.S. operations, an environment of increased scrutiny – including passage of more restrictive legislation and a spike in audit activity at every level – is quickly becoming the norm, likewise spurring a need for greater self-evaluation and for more frequent representation in controversies and litigation with tax authorities. GT's multidisciplinary tax team works closely with our clients to address these and other tax planning needs, as well as tax controversies and litigation issues.
