Law360 quoted Mark D. Allison concerning two large transfer pricing cases, U.S. v. Microsoft Corp. and Inc. v. Commissioner, which are being closely watched by the tax community. Mr. Allison noted the importance of U.S. v. Microsoft Corp. in determining the extent the government can use private lawyers to assist with litigation. He also noted that the Amazon and Microsoft cases are likely to provide a benchmark for how the government will proceed with transfer pricing cases. .

"Putting aside confidentiality issues, which is what certainly a lot of people are concerned about, it changes the playing field if the government can spend substantial resources in bringing in private practitioners to the table who could be viewed as replacing or overlapping the same work the government lawyers are doing," Allison said.
