The contentious tax team at Mayer Brown is led by Brian Kittle in New York and Thomas Kittle-Kamp and Joel Williamson in Chicago. Williams and Kittle, as well as John Hildy in Chicago, have been representing Eaton Corporation in multiple matters, including in a first impression Tax Court case in mid-2017 against allegations of impropriety by the IRS, arising from the IRS's cancellation of two advance pricing agreements. Kittle-Kamp and William McGarrity in Chicago are representing Altera Corporation in an appeals case challenging the validity of the IRS’s regulation requiring that amounts attributable to equity compensation be included in the pool of costs to be shared pursuant to a cost-sharing arrangement. Larry Langdon in Palo Alto and Gary Wilcox in Washington DC are also noted. Peter Price was promoted to partner in Chicago in January 2018. New York-based Erin Gladney moved to Baker McKenzie LLP in March 2018.
