The consideration of tax implications is key for corporations and nonprofit organizations alike. Businesses require accurate guidance on today's complex and continually changing federal and state tax laws as they relate to a full range of transactions including asset-based financings, mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganizations and bankruptcies.
Our attorneys advise on all aspects of federal, multi-state and local taxation and tax structuring for clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to closely-held businesses, including corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, trusts, sole proprietorships, as well as individual clients and nonprofit/tax-exempt organizations.
The depth of the Group's practice is reflected in the broad range of tax areas it addresses, including cutting-edge real estate investments, hedge fund structure, Subchapter T cooperative taxation and sophisticated forward and reverse like-kind exchange transactions. We provide sophisticated tax planning counsel, from advising on choosing the appropriate entity for a closely-held business to handling complex recapitalizations prior to an initial public offering. We also assist clients in identifying and structuring state and federal tax credit opportunities, including research and development incentives and low-income housing tax credits.
The Group's tax attorneys do not simply focus on the tax aspects of a client's business. Before all else, they are transactional lawyers who strive to understand the client's objectives, then quickly and efficiently complete the client's M&A, private placement, venture capital and investment SBIC transactions.
