Pierce Atwood’s Tax Group counsels clients on federal, state, and local tax. Our tax attorneys both advise clients on transactional matters as well as litigate tax disputes in state and federal courts.
On transactional matters, Pierce Atwood's tax attorneys work closely with the firm's Business, Energy Infrastructure, and Real Estate Practice Groups to deliver coordinated and seamless advice to address our clients' overall business and personal objectives. We assist with transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, commercial financing, and business succession planning, that frequently involve complex federal, state, and international tax issues. We pride ourselves on creating practical, tax-efficient structures to meet our client's needs.
Our lawyers provide planning, litigation, regulatory and legislative services to business taxpayers, associations and individuals on all state and local tax issues and economic development incentives. Our deep expertise in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island tax allows us to provide practical advice and efficient solutions for both local and multistate clients. We advise clients on complex state and local tax issues, including nexus, apportionment, and planning issues with respect to sales and operations in other states. We regularly represent clients in state and local tax controversies, from audit to litigation and dispute resolution.
