Tax Controversy Leaders Guide 2014 – nominations open

Who are the leading tax controversy advisers around the world? Nominate now.

Taxpayers’ need for advice from professionals with expertise in tax disputes is more important than ever. The case for this is clear and recent developments including government and authority aggression – prompted by the desire for greater revenues – have only served to increase the importance of quality advice.

The rise in the prominence and popularity of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in tax cases has also brought new challenges in terms of the skills taxpayers are expecting of their external advisers. Taxpayers need, and indeed expect, their advisers to have a skill set that encompasses litigation and mediation, and everything in between.

In an environment where all transactions are facing increased scrutiny, it is vital taxpayers have access to practitioners with experience in all stages of controversy, including pre-audit, audit, administrative appeals and litigation.

For the past three years, International Tax Review has produced its guide to the leading tax dispute resolution lawyers and advisers around the world to help multinational companies seeking the best tax controversy advice available. The first three editions of Tax Controversy Leaders have received excellent feedback from taxpayers who see it as a useful tool in finding the right disputes advice.

International Tax Review is committed to providing a comprehensive global tax disputes guide, recognising the leading controversy advisers, and will publish a fourth edition of Tax Controversy Leaders in July 2014. We want your valuable input on selecting the leaders in each jurisdiction and we invite you to take part in the research process.


Inclusion in Tax Controversy Leaders will be based on a minimum number of nominations received from peers and clients, along with evidence of outstanding success in the last year. Firms and individuals cannot pay to be recommended in this guide.

To take part in the research process and ensure your firm is considered for the guide, please complete this form and return it by email to Matt Gilleard at the address below.

You may nominate tax controversy advisers from your own firm providing you nominate an equal number of advisers from other firms.

When nominating advisers, please consider the following:

- Technical ability;

- Achievement of client objectives;

- Seniority in own organisation;

- Leadership in policy development with government; and

- Profile in representative associations.
