Tax Controversy and Litigation

Holland & Hart has a strong record of persuasive, effective resolution of tax controversies through IRS administrative processes and in litigation.

Tax controversies are complex, costly, and high-risk. Often, innovative solutions are needed to achieve a favorable resolution that aligns with the client’s specific business or personal goals. 

Holland & Hart has effectively resolved novel, contentious, multimillion-dollar tax disputes both administratively and in federal and state courts, including the US Tax Court. We represent large multinational corporations, Fortune 500 companies, emerging companies, individuals, estates, and nonprofit organizations across the country and across industries. We handle all stages of tax disputes, including defending audits, advocating and resolving matters at IRS Appeals and with local administrative appeals units, negotiating litigation settlements, litigating cases at trial, and arguing cases in appellate courts. We also advise clients pre-controversy, to identify and mitigate risks as part of tax planning.  

Our tax attorneys include former Big Four CPAs and experienced litigators who have served as trial attorneys with the DOJ and the IRS Office of Chief Counsel, and as judicial clerks with the US Courts of Appeals and US District Courts.
