About Roberts & Holland LLP

Organized more than fifty years ago, Roberts & Holland LLP is the largest law firm in the United States engaged primarily in the practice of tax law. Our clients and their advisors, aware that we limit our practice to tax and related matters, believe we have the broadest concentration of tax expertise of any law firm and are uniquely qualified to provide the professional services and technical support they need. Many of our clients rely upon us to augment their in-house tax capabilities to solve technical tax problems, structure intricate transactions and handle complex tax audit and litigation matters.  An important part of our practice involves helping clients manage the constantly changing, increasingly complicated employee benefits area, including qualified and nonqualified plan compliance, multiemployer plan issues, ERISA fiduciary responsibilities, executive compensation matters, and employee benefit issues in connection with mergers and acquisitions.
