A business taxation lawyer does not need to replace a tax advisor or CPA. The attorney's job is not so much number crunching as it is to keep the business structure, its operations and assets on a sound legal footing. The lawyer may also be required to step in for audits, appeals and criminal proceedings. The whole gamut of tax-related services runs from startup formation to ongoing legal services for operations and then minimizing the tax hit for M&A, IPO, liquidation, bankruptcy and asset sale proceedings.

Listed below are all the major taxation related legal services a business may need:
It's important to differentiate between services related to these issues as opposed to the complete work of conception and management of the aforementioned business activities and services. For example, a tax advisor may suggest the best business structure, the lawyer will prepare and file the registration papers, and the CPA ensures compliance of regulatory requirements for that business structure.
Similarly, HR management may suggest what terms and hiring methods are suitable for an employee (full-time, part-time, independent contractor, etc.) The lawyer will then draw up the contract to ensure the company safeguards its interests, including things like a no-compete clause.
