Eversheds is pleased to announce that its Tax Practice Group has been selected as Practice Group of the Year for the third consecutive year, and for the sixth time in the last seven years.
A tax is a compulsory financial charge or some other type of levy imposed on a taxpayer by a governmental organisation in order to fund government spending and various public expenditures, and tax compliance refers to policy actions and individual behaviour aimed at ensuring that taxpayers are paying the right amount of tax at the right time and securing the correct tax allowances and tax reliefs.
The group has been recognised for its role in helping clients succeed in high-stakes litigation and critical business challenges in Federal, International, and State and Local tax.
The Law360 Practice Group of the Year award honours law firms that have worked on the biggest deals or have achieved the biggest wins in the most important cases throughout the legal industry in the past year.
Eversheds Sutherland serves as tax counsel to many of the world’s most prominent corporations – including more than 35 of the Fortune 100 – in every area of federal, international, state and local tax law. Our prominence in legal tax services dates back to the firm’s founding nearly a century ago.
