ATLANTA and WASHINGTON—Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP is pleased to announce that the firm has been named Tax Practice Group of the Year by Law360, a nationwide legal news service. The award is given annually to firms that had the biggest wins and worked on the most important deals over a one-year period. In a featured profile, Law360 named Sutherland a “tax powerhouse” for its complex audit and litigation work.
“The ‘Practice Group of the Year’ recognition comes just weeks after Partners Jeff Friedman and Carley Roberts were named ‘Law360 Tax MVPs of the Year,’” said Sutherland Managing Partner Mark D. Wasserman. “I’m very proud of our team’s continuous efforts to provide the best in client service.”
A group of Law360 editors reviewed more than 680 submissions, of which 159 firms covering 26 practice areas were recognized. Sutherland was one of just four firms selected by Law360 for recognition in the Tax category.
Sutherland’s tax practice is composed of more than 100 attorneys representing many of the world’s largest corporations—including more than 35 of the Fortune 100—in every industry sector and in virtually every area of tax law, on the federal, international, state and local levels. By virtue of the size of its tax practice and its varied client base, Sutherland is active in every area of taxation—from planning the most complex corporate tax transactions to representing taxpayers in administrative and judicial tax controversies.
