Political Law

Federal, state, and local laws that govern political activities are increasingly numerous and complex. Inappropriate or illegal political activity can hinder work on important policy issues, impact a corporation's bottom line, or undermine a promising candidacy. Caplin & Drysdale's bipartisan Political Law group provides businesses, trade associations, nonprofits, candidates, and activists with timely, concise counsel on the high-stakes legal issues that involve "pay-to-play" restrictions, lobbying regulations, campaign finance laws, and ethics rules.

Tax Controversies

An IRS examination or audit can disrupt your business operations and, if not handled properly and controlled, can materially affect your relationships with third parties and shareholders, and ultimately your bottom line and share price. A taxpayer involved in an international tax controversy can face special challenges and opportunities, such as issues relating to foreign-based documents, the IRS's international summons and collection authority, and invocation of the Competent Authority relief procedures. Clients call upon Caplin & Drysdale for our broad knowledge of the tax controversy process and our superior relationships with the IRS and foreign tax authorities.
