The team of tax lawyers at The Ferraro Law Firm exclusively represents tax whistleblowers. As one of the most successful plaintiff’s law firms in the country, and with over one billion dollars in compensation recovered for clients, we believe that The Ferraro Law Firm offers tax whistleblowers a clear choice by providing them with the same high-quality representation that the largest corporations and wealthiest individuals enjoy.
Attorney James Ferraro, a certified public accountant and one of 10 national finalists for Trial Lawyer of the Year in 1997, manages our firm. He is joined in this practice by two of our firm’s newest partners Scott Knott and Gregory Lynam who have years of experience at large international law firms representing some of the world’s biggest companies, and hold advanced law degrees in Taxation. They have insiders’ knowledge of corporate tax issues. Our associate, Erica Brady, also has an advanced law degree in Taxation from Georgetown University and years of experience in preparing tax whistleblower submissions.
Scott Knott co-established the tax group at The Ferraro Law Firm in July of 2007 and thereafter filed the first of many tax whistleblower claims that exceed a billion dollars. He has represented many multi-national corporations, high-net worth individuals, foreign governments, and underprivileged taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service and in litigation in the U.S. Tax Court and federal courts, often involving tax deficiencies and refunds in the hundreds of millions of dollars. When not handling comunications with the IRS through all phases of whistleblower claims, Scott has more than 10 years experience as an amateur sports car racer.

He has filed more than $64 billion in tax underpayments to the IRS Whistleblower Office to date, representing potential awards for his clients in excess of $19 billion. Gregory has extensive experience in controversies and informant submissions involving tax fraud, partnership issues, transfer pricing, interest allocation, R&E credit, information reporting, and tax-advantaged transactions (a.k.a. tax shelters).
