Litigation - Tax

I'm a Tax Director with AT&T, Inc. We've engaged Sullivan & Worcester to handle over 1,000 personal property tax litigation matters, which dated as far back as TY2008 to TY2019. Their diligent efforts, dedication and responsive actions brought timely closure to these matters, once they were brought into our assignment. When a senior attorney wasn't required for various tasks, they were willing to assign such to staff attorneys or paralegals to ensure our project was handled on a cost effective manner. I'm thoroughly pleased with their efforts and staffing assignments on such. I highly recommend their firm. They are professional, responsive, budget sensitive, driven and effective.
