We built our practice on customer service, emphasizing three principles: accessibility, team-oriented service and boldness.
Accessibility: We respond to client communications quickly and thoroughly, because we realize our clients’ time is at least as valuable as ours. If you have an important question or issue, we ask the right questions and our next communications supplies the answer or a plan to fix the issue.
Team-oriented service: International company taxation and tax planning is an interesting practice area because it often involves trade-offs and deliberation by clients, their representatives and the tax authorities. Many important issues do not conform precisely to precedent and, therefore, require exploration by all stakeholders. Because we have attorneys who work in different countries and have experience with multiple tax jurisdictions, we often discuss our client’s best options given our experience. We find this is the best way to get clients an optimal outcome.
Boldness: This is not an attribute often associated with tax lawyers, but it is important to understand what we mean by being bold. We examine every issue contained in a client’s tax return with an analytical eye. Specific tax deductions, tax treatments and other critical features of tax law involve a degree of interpretation, and we want to make sure we are reviewing all the options to minimize our clients’ tax liability. If there is a logical argument for a more favorable interpretation, we will make that argument.
The transatlantic profile of THEVOZ Attorneys and broad knowledge of multiple tax jurisdictions in the US, Europe and globally makes us a strategic asset for your business.
