Practice/Industry Group Overview

Jones Day’s Tax Practice assists clients in responding to the challenges of the current environment by emphasizing the development of creative, practical solutions to tax problems.

The focus of the Tax Practice reflects the changing business environment in which we live.  The tax law is becoming more dispute-oriented, more international in scope and, despite efforts to the contrary, more complicated and subject to frequent revision.  The client service challenges created by complexity and change are addressed in part by the identification and development of Firm leaders in key areas of practice.  These lawyers combine extensive experience with an understanding of the latest developments in their field, and many have been recognized as among the world’s outstanding tax practitioners.  The knowledge and experience of each tax lawyer is made available Firmwide through a long tradition of close collaboration and cooperation across offices and practices.
