Chamberlain Hrdlicka lawyer discussed preparing witnesses
PHILADELPHIA (May 2017) – Nationally recognized tax controversy and litigation attorney Phil Karter, a shareholder with national law firm Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams & Aughtry, recently co-presented at the 2017 Audits & Appeals Seminar organized by the Tax Executives Institute.
Karter joined Chamberlain Hrdlicka colleague David Aughtry in presenting a session entitled “Witnesses, Whistleblowers and Protecting the Cause,” which focused on how to prepare witnesses for IRS interviews during a tax audit, and was part of the day’s programming detailing “Insights and Skills for Federal Tax Controversy Success.” This was the fourth consecutive year in which Karter has acted as a presenter during the TEI seminar, which is designed to meet the tax controversy needs of the in-house professional community.
An experienced tax controversy attorney, Karter has litigated federal tax cases in the United States District Courts, the United States Tax Court and the United States Court of Federal Claims and has argued in the United States Court of Appeals in multiple circuits. His range of trial experience, which includes dozens of jury and non-jury cases tried to judgment, encompasses a wide variety of complex and high-profile matters involving federal income, estate and gift, and excise tax issues. That experience has been acknowledged by several leading ranking publications, including Chambers USA, which routinely lists Karter among its leading nationwide tax controversy lawyers and the Legal 500 U.S., also for tax controversy.
A shareholder in the Philadelphia office of Chamberlain Hrdlicka, Karter earned a bachelor’s degree from Emory University, a law degree from the University of Wisconsin School of Law, and an LL.M. degree in taxation from New York University School of Law.
