Proper structuring of tax matters is a critical part of your business. Our corporate tax attorneys serve as an integral part of your transactional team. Our attorneys provide sophisticated, complex tax planning and structuring for businesses, individuals, tax-exempt organizations and international ventures of all sizes in a wide variety of industries. We work closely with our employment, corporate and securities, and real estate law colleagues in structuring a wide variety of complex business relationships. Fluent in many languages, our tax attorneys can also advise you on international cross-border aspects of your transactions and operations.
We have substantial experience in structuring and advising on all tax aspects of the purchase and sale of businesses, mergers, corporate reorganizations and other transfers of ownership interests in businesses, including to and from publicly traded corporations.
We are adept at organizing, structuring and negotiating partnership agreements and limited liability company agreements, as well as structuring the most tax efficient methods for distributing and selling assets by these entities, redemption of ownership interests and the use of partnerships and limited liability companies in connection with complex estate planning strategies.
Additionally, we provide comprehensive counsel to non-profit and charitable organizations, advising on the technicalities of federal and state tax exemption, tax-exempt financing, unrelated business income taxation and non-profit corporate governance. We represent a broad range of tax-exempt entities, including health care organizations, private schools and other educational organizations.
We have extensive experience advising clients in complex international cross-border transactions, helping them obtain the most tax efficient structures for cross border business operations. This includes United States and non-United States based businesses, structuring both inbound and outbound transactions and handling tax controversies involving international transactions before the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS). A number of our international tax attorneys are also licensed to practice in Mexico.
