West Conshohocken: Office Information
Chamberlain Hrdlicka’s Philadelphia office, which opened in 2007 as a nationally prominent federal tax boutique specializing in domestic and international tax planning, tax controversy and tax litigation, has expanded into a multidisciplinary law practice handling, federal, state and local tax planning, controversy and litigation matters, general civil litigation and dispute resolution, estate planning and administration, corporate and commercial real estate.
Our clients range from the largest domestic and foreign multinational corporations to every other conceivable form of business entity, estates, trusts, individuals and nonprofit organizations. Our tax planning lawyers represent clients in cross-border financial transactions, international structuring, global tax minimization, including transfer pricing and contract manufacturing arrangements, foreign tax credit management and planning, section 199 deductions, accounting method issues, including inventory methods and capitalization issues, and advising on the application of FIN 48 to domestic and international tax issues.
Our Federal tax controversy and tax litigation practice also services some of the nation’s largest public and privately-held companies, for whom we have successfully handled nationally prominent litigation matters against the IRS and Department of Justice and resolved numerous other tax controversies at the administrative audit level or with IRS appeals. As with our tax planning practice, we also help smaller companies, estates, trusts and individuals successfully navigate through the IRS administrative, appeal process and, where necessary, the litigative process.
State and Local Tax
Our State and Local tax practice services clients at all stages of the audit and appeal process, from the initial notice to the client that it was selected for audit by the state or local taxing authorities throughout the administrative and judicial process, including trial and appeals to the appellate courts. For all of such matters, our lawyers in Philadelphia can draw upon firm-wide resources and expertise, providing them the ability to deliver the highest caliber range of services.
Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution
The attorneys in our litigation and dispute resolution practice represent business entities and individuals in a wide variety of civil disputes before federal and state courts as well as government agencies such as the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Federal Trade Commission. We also provide advice to businesses on how to comply with laws, rules and regulations of these and other federal and state agencies that may help them avoid or minimize the risk of costly litigation or administrative disputes. When disputes are not susceptible to amicable resolution and alternative dispute resolution presents an available and favorable alternative to litigation, we advise and represent clients including arbitration and mediation proceedings.
Estate Planning and Administration
Our estate planning and administration practice focuses on advising individuals and families on a full spectrum of complex estate planning matters, including wills, trusts, closely held businesses (limited liability companies, limited partnerships and business succession planning), tax-exempt organizations, estate, gift and generation skipping transfer tax planning, and gift and estate tax return preparation.
Through the representation of multiple generations, we are able to take a long view of wealth preservation and wealth transfer planning that incorporates each family’s core set of values and helps them achieve their goals in a tax efficient way.
Through our corporate practice, we assist clients ranging from the young entrepreneur to the well-established private and publicly-held company. We help clients implement the formation of new businesses, in the acquisition, financing and sale of existing businesses, and the closing of complex mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures. We provide advice regarding the proper form of entity for a new business and counsel clients in connection with business governance, structure and strategic planning.
Our real estate attorneys provide the full range of services to property owners, investors and developers in connection with projects in the Philadelphia region and across the country. We work closely with clients in the development, financing, negotiation, acquisition and sale of office buildings, apartment complexes, industrial space, shopping centers and mixed-use projects. We also guide clients in the choice of entity decision (including partnerships, limited liability companies and corporations) and assist in the formation of beneficial relationships with builders, architects and other vendors.
