Jill Weise Quoted in Bloomberg Tax on the Coca-Cola Transfer Pricing Case

Jill Weise, Managing Director and Global Head of Duff & Phelps' Transfer Pricing practice, was featured in a recent Bloomberg Tax article titled, “Coca-Cola Tax Court Loss Reminds Companies to Watch IP Valuation.” The article covers the IRS’ U.S. Tax Court win on November 18, 2020 against Coca-Cola Co. concerning a transfer pricing method the company used to license intangibles.
