Guiding you through the maze of taxation.
We understand the importance of providing tax advice geared toward the particular commercial environment and industry in which our clients operate in both domestic and cross-border contexts.
Recognized for their technical expertise and practical approach, our tax attorneys work closely with our clients and other practice groups to structure general business transactions, including M&A, venture capital, buyouts, joint ventures, partnerships, recapitalizations, financings, bankruptcies, workouts and litigation settlements. These transactions frequently involve multinational businesses and raise complex U.S. and foreign tax issues, often impacting the form and commercial terms of the contemplated transactions. Our clients include mid- and large-sized businesses, private equity, venture capital and other investment funds and high net worth individuals.
Our clients appreciate our ability to identify potential costly tax issues and explain them in plain English. Our goal in every context is to find innovative and practical solutions balanced against often competing non-tax concerns. . . Applying our experience, creativity and practical judgment, we assist our clients with negotiating complex transactional and operating agreements Our tax attorneys have published and spoken on emerging tax issues, and actively participate in matters with our global affiliate firms.
In addition to transaction services, our Tax Group represents entities and individuals involved in federal and state tax audits and appeals. We have had great success representing clients who have made voluntary disclosures relating to offshore bank accounts, unpaid sales tax obligations and unclaimed property/escheat issues. We also regularly advise on executive compensation arrangements, including stock options, stock appreciation rights, profits interests and other equity-based programs. Our tax attorneys also advise tax-exempt organizations (including public charities and private foundations) with respect to formation and ongoing operational issues.
