Our Difference

Our tax attorneys have extensive experience advising clients on tax issues in connection with entity formation, acquisitions, tax-free reorganizations, spinoffs, joint ventures and divestitures. We routinely provide both domestic and international tax advice to individuals and companies of all sizes regarding federal and state income tax issues, including advice concerning mergers and acquisitions, complex partnership transactions, and transactions involving financial instruments. We also counsel clients regarding state transfer and income tax compliance with respect to operations in more than 30 states. We also advise tax exempt organizations including both private foundations and public charities and private clients on tax issues in connection with business planning. Our tax attorneys regularly represent clients facing audits in administrative proceedings before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Colorado Department of Revenue.
