Regarding the lawyers included in Tax Controversy Leaders, the publication says, “The need for advice from professionals with expertise in tax disputes is more important than ever. The litigators in this guide have experience not only at every level in the courts, but also in administrative proceedings, audits, appeals and competent authority negotiations.”
