Above The Law named Ivins, Phillips & Barker to its “Tax Firm Power Rankings” list on July 20, 2016. Only ten law firms from around the country were selected for this exclusive list, based on their expertise in tax practice and influence in the policymaking process.
Ivins, Phillips & Barker was founded in 1935 by two of the original members of the United States Board of Tax Appeals (now the United States Tax Court). Since its inception, Ivins has had a reputation as one of the nation’s leading tax law firms, enabling the firm to form lasting relationships with major corporations and prominent families. Representative clients of Ivins include General Electric, IBM, Xerox, and General Motors.
In its over 80 years of operation, Ivins has celebrated numerous accomplishments and has been continuously involved in shaping the federal tax code. Ivins attorneys successfully lobbied Congress in 1969 to enact key tax law provisions that established much of the regulatory framework governing tax-exempt organizations today. A decade later, Ivins' employee benefits attorneys aided in the enactment of the 401(k) and cafeteria plan provisions of the tax code. Additionally, Ivins has litigated a number of landmark tax cases, including a victory in United Dominion Industries v. United States, the most recent of four cases that the firm has argued before the United States Supreme Court.
Ivins, Phillips & Barker is proud of the recognition as one of the leading tax law firms in the country and is committed to staying on the forefront of important developments in the tax law.
