Our tax law experience and capabilities include:

  • Federal income tax

A keen eye on all the details.

Tax planning presents a challenging set of issues and considerations for businesses and individuals. Aligning the various pieces into a simple, cohesive picture takes extensive knowledge and a nuanced understanding of tax codes. That’s where Preti Flaherty’s tax law team comes in. We have some of the most experienced and specialized tax attorneys in the region, and we pride ourselves on the ability to comb through the most complex plans and transactions to identify all current and potential tax issues and offer solutions for each. We also regularly consult our attorneys in related practice groups such as real estate, employment and municipal, offering clients a multi-disciplinary approach to handling all tax considerations.
