Tax - Contentious disputes

The number, complexity and scope of contentious disputes with tax authorities is increasing and an ever-greater number of clients are mindful of the possibility of tax litigation. Our tax team works closely with our dispute resolution lawyers to provide advice and guidance at all stages of a potential dispute, from an opinion on a filing position, to advice on responding to enquiries or requests for documents from the tax authority, to negotiation, settlement or, where appropriate, litigation. Our contentious work also extends to managing tax risk and compliance obligations in an increasingly challenging environment.
