Mountain View, CA (October 7, 2013) – Fenwick & West is pleased to announce that for the fifth year Fenwick has been named San Francisco Area Tax Firm of the Year by International Tax Review. The Americas Awards are presented annually by International Tax Review, a leading publication covering the tax industry, and recognize “the most outstanding provision of tax services,” using innovation and ingenuity in their work for clients in North and South America.
“We’re thrilled to receive this recognition again this year,” said David Forst, chair of Fenwick’s tax group, “The San Francisco Bay Area and the innovative companies that call the Bay Area home have always presented novel challenges for tax practitioners, and I’m proud to work alongside some of the best.”
Fenwick has achieved a reputation as having one of the nation's leading domestic and international tax practices. The tax group's dynamic and sophisticated practice stems from a client base that is represented in every geographic region of the United States, as well as a number of foreign countries. Fenwick’s tax attorneys handle high-stakes transactional work, as well as advising on joint ventures and complex transfer pricing matters.
Earlier this year, Fenwick’s tax group received high rankings in both Chambers Global and Chambers USA, which also noted Fenwick’s tax work in the Bay Area saying that Fenwick’s “highly respected national tax practice […] enjoys an excellent reputation for tax work involving companies based in Silicon Valley, and is highly recommended for its experience acting on behalf of hi-tech clients, such as Facebook.” The guide also notes the group’s international tax planning and “M&A expertise.”
