Fenwick Ranked in First Tier of World’s Leading Tax Advisors

Mountain View, CA (December 12, 2012) – Fenwick & West was ranked in the first tier of World Tax 2013, an annual directory of the leading tax advisory and law firms published by International Tax Review. One of only six firms recognized in the San Francisco and Silicon Valley area, the firm has been recognized in the first tier annually since the guide’s inception.

“We are proud that such a reputable guide would continue to honor us by ranking our tax team in the first tier,” David Forst, chair of Fenwick’s Tax team, said. “I am privileged to work with such a talented and intelligent group of lawyers.”

Firms ranked in the first tier are recognized as the best tax teams in their respective countries with attorneys who are specialists in all the areas of tax, including planning, transactional, transfer pricing, indirect taxes and litigation – as evidenced by the size and quality of the firm’s tax work.

In compiling the rankings, International Tax Review interviewed practitioners, as well as corporate tax directors and advisors chosen from a representative sample of clients of the leading firms in the market.

Earlier this year, International Tax Review named Fenwick Americas M&A Tax Firm of the Year and ranked the firm as one of only two U.S. law firms in the first tier of both its World’s Leading Tax Planning Firms and World’s Leading Transactional Firms guides.
