The Tax & Employee Benefits Practice of Foley has a history of helping our clients succeed and prosper through knowledgeable and tax-advantageous counseling, transactions, and planning. Our attorneys and staff are skilled in tax law, executive and corporate compensation, benefits planning, and disputes with state and federal tax authorities. Our reputation for knowledgeable assistance is underscored by the fact that we have participated in landmark trial decisions, helped establish tax law precedents, and laid the groundwork for many state and federal tax procedures. Clients we work with include publicly held corporations, nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations, and start-up ventures.

Foley's Tax attorneys offer corporate clients comprehensive federal, state, and international tax services, ranging from transactional tax planning and tax litigation to legislative and regulatory advocacy. Our corporate clients range from Fortune 100 companies to small, entrepreneurial start-up businesses. We also serve a large number of insurance companies of all sizes as well as charities, health care organizations, trade and other associations, and other tax-exempt entities.

Our attorneys also regularly respond to audits and investigations, seek tax refunds, and defend our clients in civil and criminal cases brought by federal, state and local taxing authorities at the administrative, trial and appellate court levels.

For business clients, we help plan and integrate acquisitions and divestitures as well as help with starting new ventures such as corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies.

Employee Benefits
The Foley attorneys in this practice counsel employers about a wide range of employee benefits and executive compensation matters. We provide preventive counseling on benefits practices and policies to reduce exposure to employee complaints, governmental agency actions, and union-related problems. We counsel on a broad variety of employee matters, including health, dental, disability, life insurance, severance, cafeteria, and flexible benefits plans. Our counsel also extends to Medicare and Social Security benefits, COBRA compliance, and post-retirement benefits issues such as funding and termination. We also advise and assist clients in resolving benefits issues arising in mergers and acquisitions. We assist and work closely with Foley trial lawyers who represent corporations and their benefit plans in litigation involving employment benefits and other obligations under ERISA.
