Liskow’s attorneys have a reputation for excellence in tax litigation because they base their strategy on a fundamental premise: tax litigation is litigation. It generally involves discovery, pretrial motions, evidentiary issues, burdens of proof, and – most importantly – framing your case in a way that is compelling to the trier of fact. Liskow’s tax litigation attorneys work closely with Liskow’s tax lawyers who have the specialized knowledge and expertise to advise on the correct outcomes under complex tax schemes and laws that may be difficult to comprehend. It is the role of the tax litigation attorneys to take that knowledge and convey it in a way that gives our clients the best chance of prevailing, even in forums that may be less than friendly to businesses trying to lessen their tax burden. Liskow has a history of prevailing in high stakes tax litigation, from the Louisiana Tax Commission, the Board of Tax Appeals, or the district courts, to the Courts of Appeals, and the Louisiana Supreme Court.
Liskow’s expertise includes all forms of state and local tax litigation, such as severance taxes, sales and use taxes, ad valorem or property taxes, and corporate income and franchise tax. Our clients come to us as soon as they see a tax issue on the horizon, even if that happens before or during a tax audit. That way, we can begin right away to help them posture their case in a way that gives the best chance of a successful outcome.
