The tax ramifications of a transaction are determined by a multitude of factors, all of which are subject to change with the tax laws themselves. Our tax attorneys provide transactional clients, both buyers and sellers, with savvy yet flexible advice on the most tax-efficient means of structuring their deals. We spend much of our time at the front end of these deals, identifying the entity structures and compensation schemes that work best from a tax perspective. As tax laws evolve, our advice on the structural aspects of transactions evolves with them.
A Wide-Ranging Practice
Our clients trust us to look at their acquisitions and dispositions from a tax-advantaged perspective. Our advice is informed by our deep knowledge of the changing tax laws, and we have broad experience in a full range of tax controversies. We work with both litigators and our own labor and employment lawyers to structure tax-related settlements in disputes. And we navigate the tax implications for real estate transactions, individuals, joint ventures and funds — including like-kind exchange transactions.
Facilitating Cross-Border Deals
Many of our clients are large multinational holding companies based in Europe with a massive presence in the United States. They are constantly buying and selling companies in this country, and we work with them to optimize their tax posture on both sides of the Atlantic. Likewise for U.S. clients looking to expand abroad, especially to Europe, we work with trusted local counsel to manage the tax implications of their cross-border transactions.
