Mayer Brown, a leading global law firm, announced that Legal 500 named the firm Team of the Year for the “Media, Technology and Telecoms: Outsourcing” and “Tax Controversy” categories in the inaugural Legal 500 United States Awards. The awards recognize the best private practice teams over the past 12 months and were chosen through the research conducted to determine the rankings for the 2014 edition of Legal 500 United States.

In the 2014 edition of Legal 500 US, the publication and its sources said that Mayer Brown’s “incomparable” Outsourcing team “handles strategic and complex outsourcing for major US and international clients” and  “is lauded for its ‘professionalism, responsiveness and integrity.’”

In the Tax Controversy category, “Mayer Brown is ‘among the best’ and fields a large team…dedicated exclusively to tax controversy and transfer pricing,” said Legal 500 and its sources in the 2014 US edition. “The firm’s extensive experience spans the full gamut of controversy work, from administrative appeals to litigation in the trial court and at appellate court level.”
