Organized more than fifty years ago, Roberts & Holland 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.
Our founders, Sidney I. Roberts and William C. Warren, foresaw the area of taxation as poised for enormous growth. Initially focused on real estate and corporate taxation, they anticipated the expansion of business overseas, and co-authored a comprehensive treatise on the U.S. taxation of foreign corporations and individuals that became the definitive reference guide for other tax professionals. Building on that expertise, they broadened the scope of the practice to all areas of federal and state taxation. Because of the depth of our experience and our leadership role in the tax community, we are often brought in as special tax counsel on major transactions involving planning, audits and litigation.
At Roberts & Holland, we are dedicated to maintaining our reputation as the premier law firm in the nation that concentrates in tax law by delivering imaginative, responsive client service through the diverse talents of our approximately 35 lawyers. We work closely with clients to master all relevant aspects of a transaction, so as to maximize the tax economics while achieving the overall business objectives.
