Tax Controversy Lawyer, Chuck Hurley, joins Norton Rose Fulbright
Norton Rose Fulbright has announced that Chuck Hurley, a tax controversy lawyer, has joined the firm’s Washington, DC office as a partner. He comes to Norton Rose Fulbright from Mayer Brown LLP.
Hurley spent more than 13 years with the US Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Tax Division, where he held first chair on more than 20 jury and bench trials, including two of the division’s most prominent cases: Long-Term Capital Holdings v. United States and Trigon Insurance Co. v. United States.
Currently, Hurley advises clients on tax litigation matters from a wide range of industries, including consumer products, technology, energy and professional services. His experience also includes IRS audits and appeals, tax consulting and planning, government relations, research and development tax credits and IRS summons enforcement.
Linda Addison, Norton Rose Fulbright’s US Managing Partner, said:
“Chuck has first chaired tax trials both at the DOJ and in private practice, and that experience is both valuable and rare among tax litigators. Our clients will benefit greatly from Chuck’s unique insight and more than 20 years of experience.”
Robert Phillpott, Norton Rose Fulbright’s US Head of Tax, commented:
“Our firm’s strong tax controversy practice will benefit from Chuck’s experience trying cases, including in Federal District Court, a vital qualification for outside counsel when advising on multibillion dollar tax controversies.”
Hurley, who is listed in the International Tax Review’s Tax Controversy Leaders guide, said:
“I am excited and honored to join Norton Rose Fulbright and its global tax practice. I believe that my experience can help the firm’s existing clients, while several of my business relationships will benefit from working with Norton Rose Fulbright, an extraordinary global law firm with significant worldwide resources.”
Hurley received his JD from Case Western Reserve University School of Law and his BA from Kent State University. He is licensed to practice in the District of Columbia and Ohio.
