Eversheds Sutherland is pleased to announce that its Tax Practice Group has been selected as Practice Group of the Year by Law360 for the third consecutive year, and for the sixth time in the last seven years. 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.
“Tax has long been one of Eversheds Sutherland’s premiere practice groups, and it is an honour to be recognised consistently for the team’s tremendous work,” said Mark D. Wasserman, Eversheds Sutherland Co-CEO. “I congratulate them for their exceptional accomplishments, excellent client service and for receiving this award.”
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.
“We have had a particularly strong year in tax planning and tax controversy. We are fortunate to have a group of talented tax lawyers whose experience span the breadth of every significant tax specialty area. Our lawyers are committed to providing our clients with thoughtful and integrated tax advice, and we are humbled to be recognised as a top practice group for the third year in a row,” said Jeffrey A. Friedman, US Tax Practice Group Leader.
