Testimonial

Having worked in the Seattle market for over 15 years, Duff & Phelps became aware of Clark Nuber through their excellent reputation in the field. After working with the firm, we realized we shared a similar approach to serving our clients. We could not be happier with our partnership in the international tax and transfer pricing arena. Clark Nuber consistently makes their expertise apparent through their relationships with their clients. For example, while managing a complex IP migration transfer-pricing project, Clark Nuber drew on their deep understanding of their client, and their own technical knowledge, to assemble a cross-functional tax team. The tax team was able to see the project through from conception to completion. I think it is also important to note that we truly enjoy working with Clark Nuber professionals on a personal level. Clark Nuber is full of interesting people who understand, and appreciate, the need to enjoy serving clients in order to serve them well.
