Carley.Roberts_TaxAnalysts.jpgSutherland is pleased to announce that Partner Carley A. Roberts has been recognized as one of the “Outstanding Women in Tax” by Tax Analysts, a leading publisher of tax news and analysis.

A group of Tax Analysts editors, reporters and board members reviewed more than 300 submissions, of which only 10 women were honored for having a significant impact on tax practice or tax policy. Carley was recognized for her noteworthy contributions to the California and national state tax communities.

Carley is a nationally recognized California tax litigator, who has developed a significant practice handling cases involving many of California’s most critical state and local tax (SALT) issues, including some of the most important corporate income and sales/use tax cases in litigation and on appeal. She represents a wide range of clients, including technology and financial service providers, energy businesses, retailers, manufacturers, communications providers and media businesses.

“This award is a fitting tribute to Carley’s commitment to her clients and dedication to advancing the SALT community,” said Sutherland Managing Partner Mark D. Wasserman. “We congratulate her on this wonderful honor.”

In 2007, Carley revived the California Tax Policy Conference—the leading conference on developments in the bellwether state for state tax policy. She chaired that event through 2014 and has given selflessly to the California State Bar’s Taxation Section and the California tax community.

Carley has been the recipient of numerous awards and is regularly featured in the legal profession’s “best of” and “who’s who” lists. Most recently, she was recognized as a key influencer in SALT and was featured in a “State Tax Spotlight,” published by State Tax Today, one of Tax Analysts’ weekly print publications. Carley was also named a Law360 2014 Tax MVP of the Year for having the biggest wins and making the most significant contributions to the SALT community.
