Mayer Brown launches transfer pricing blog

Mayer Brown announced today the launch of its transfer pricing blog, Best Methods. The blog is designed to provide in-house tax professionals, transfer pricing consultants, and tax administrations timely updates on the latest transfer pricing guidance, legislative and regulatory developments, and cases from the US, the OECD, and tax jurisdictions around the globe.

The blog is co-edited by partners John Hildy, Jason Osborn, and Astrid Pieron, as well as Elena Khripounova, PhD, director of transfer pricing and valuation services. Other regular contributors include partners Tom Kittle-Kamp, Scott Stewart, associate Anthony Pastore, and many of our other tax professionals.

“Providing sophisticated transfer pricing advice to large multinational clients has been a pillar of Mayer Brown’s tax practice for more than three decades,” said Mr. Kittle-Kamp, a co-leader of the firm’s Tax Controversy Practice. “Mayer Brown’s legal, economic and other professionals provide transfer pricing advice carefully tailored to each client’s specific circumstances and based upon our deep practical experience of what works and what doesn’t.”

“Our clients are highly sophisticated and we enjoy collaborating with them to develop bespoke transfer pricing structures and craft thoughtful and sophisticated transfer pricing documentation. We also work with our clients to proactively negotiate bilateral and multilateral Advanced Pricing Agreements and avoid disputes if at all possible,” he said.

According to Mr. Kittle-Kamp, “Of course, given its nature, transfer pricing often leads to tax disputes and we handle these at every level, including mutual agreement procedures under international tax treaties. One thing that sets us apart is our trial and litigation experience. Because our top-ranked tax controversy practice has handled some of the most complex transfer pricing cases ever litigated, we can help our clients confidently assess the bounds of a fair administrative resolution and avoid wherever possible the cost and distraction of litigation. Our clients prize these experiences as providing keen analytical and practical perspectives not found elsewhere.”

“We also recognize that clients often benefit from receiving advice from multiple independent perspectives. Through the years we have built strong relationships working closely and seamlessly with leading transfer pricing professionals from accounting firms, law firms and independent consultancies,” he added.
