Arbitration & Litigation SupportPDF
Our attorneys have appeared as expert witnesses and as panelists in arbitration cases stemming from disputes regarding the consequences of provisions in contracts that allocate tax liability. Agreements for the sale of stock invariably contain tax-sharing clauses that provide for indemnification or reimbursement by one party to the other. Often these provisions are less than clear, which can give rise to post-sale disputes.
In preparation for arbitration hearings and potential litigation, our attorneys support controversy teams by developing arbitration strategies and providing expert reports and testimony regarding highly technical tax provisions. We provide compelling support in a manner that is clear and comprehensible to the judge or arbitrator, who often is not well-versed in tax matters.
