Crowell & Moring's Tax Accounting Practice is recognized by our clients—and by the IRS and Department of the Treasury—for our depth of knowledge, experience, integrity, professionalism, and, most importantly, for our results. Our attorneys have assisted many of the largest and most well-respected companies in the world with the planning and resolution of the most complex tax accounting issues.

Crowell & Moring's tax accounting attorneys, have held senior positions within the IRS, the Department of Justice, and the Department of the Treasury; have advised policy makers on tax accounting issues; and are well-versed in the ruling policies and inner workings of the IRS, which has enabled them to obtain favorable rulings and technical advice memoranda from the IRS national office.

In addition, the Crowell & Moring tax accounting team has resolved tax accounting issues for our clients using a variety of alternative dispute resolution techniques, including Industry Issue Resolution, Fast-Track appeals, post-appeals mediation, and alternative-timing and time-value of money resolutions. Our attorneys have represented clients on significant tax accounting issues during all phases of resolution, including IRS audit, administrative appeals, and, when necessary and advisable, through litigation.
