About Kostelanetz LLP
“A firm of extraordinary quality” – The Legal 500
“An expert tax boutique” – Chambers USA
Kostelanetz attorneys are highly skilled and approach each matter strategically based on decades of administrative and litigation experience. Many of our attorneys have served as former senior officials within the Internal Revenue Service, the U.S. Department of Justice, and other federal and state prosecutors’ offices. Several of the firm’s attorneys have served as federal judicial law clerks and/or have master’s degrees in taxation.
The firm and its attorneys have been honored and recognized by major, independent national and international legal rankings agencies, including Chambers USA, The Legal 500, Best Lawyers, and Super Lawyers.
Kostelanetz LLP attorneys are thought leaders who frequently write articles for The CPA Journal, Tax Notes, The Journal of Tax Practice & Procedure, Law360, and other respected publications on the latest topics and trends in tax law, civil and criminal tax enforcement, commercial litigation, and white-collar criminal defense, including recent developments in IRS audits, IRS criminal investigations, state and local enforcement actions against alleged tax evasion, and enforcement measures taken by the Justice Department, FinCEN, and various government regulatory agencies.
Several of our partners teach at top law schools (such as NYU and Georgetown), present CLE/CPE courses on tax-related and legal ethics topics, and are often hired as expert witnesses or consultants in tax controversy litigation.
Our individual and institutional clients have immediate access to the firm’s partners and most senior attorneys. The firm focuses on providing value to its clients and is sensitive to the balance between cost and benefit inherent in every legal assignment. As a result, we have the depth and flexibility to add attorney strength as the needs of the client or matter demand.
Kostelanetz LLP is a destination for the legal elite. Lawyers come to our boutique practice because we focus on our lawyers’ professional development and pursue excellence. Our supportive culture is tightly tied to low associate-turnover, high promotion rates, outstanding legal work, and excellent client service.
