NEW YORK—Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP is pleased to announce that Captive Review named the firm Tax Advisory Firm of the Year for the third consecutive year in its 2015 U.S. Captive Service Awards.
Judged by a panel of captive owners and risk managers and presented by the leading trade publication focused on risk management and captive insurance, the awards celebrate innovation, commitment and expertise in the captive insurance field.
Judges were impressed by the “volume and diversity of Sutherland’s involvement in captive tax matters,” particularly noting the firm’s “contribution to a number of important tax judgments impacting on captive insurance companies in the United States, including the Validus Reinsurance Ltd case concerning federal excise tax on premiums paid to foreign (re)insurers.”
“We are very proud that our captive insurance team has been consistently recognized for their relentless commitment to the success of our clients,” said Sutherland Managing Partner Mark D. Wasserman. “It is a wonderful reflection of our tax and insurance group’s remarkable history and continuing leadership.”
Sutherland’s captive insurance practice advises U.S., international and multinational clients on creative solutions to manage risks and realize business objectives through captives.
