Taxation

The Firm provides general advise to clients on national and local taxation issues, as well as assistance in estate planning, estate settlement and the conduct of tax compliance audits. In addition, the Firm’s lawyers render studied, complex and in-depth opinions on tax planning and structuring of joint ventures, corporate restructuring, reorganization, mergers, and acquisitions. Corollary to this, tax advice is also given on employee benefits (pensions, retirement, stock option plans). As many of the clients are foreign corporations, the Firm is frequently called upon to render expert advice on tax treaty implications and its applications.

 

The Firm also represents its clients on issues dealing with matters such as customs laws, the anti-dumping law and safeguard measures under the National Internal Revenue Code and the pertinent Revenue Regulations. The Firm represents its clients in tax litigation involving administrative protests and claims for refund before the appropriate bodies and courts.
