Tax: Federal, State & Local

Structuring for Success
Federal tax laws are extensive, complicated and constantly changing. Structuring your company’s operations and transactions to take full advantage of the opportunities provided can meaningfully benefit your business.

At the same time, state and local governments are cash-strapped and looking for ways to raise revenue. This puts companies at risk of incurring additional costs at a time when competition is fierce. It also makes it harder for companies operating in multiple states to keep up-to-date with changes and ensure they remain in compliance.

We advise on the tax consequences of merger and acquisition transactions, business restructurings, cross border business transactions, and on compliance with federal, state, and local tax laws. We assist with the formation and structuring of LLCs, joint ventures, and other pass-through entities. We represent clients on both sides of venture capital investments. When appropriate, we assist clients by obtaining advance rulings from tax authorities on the tax implications of specific transactions.

How We Can Help
We advise companies of all sizes and corporate structures—whether they be corporations, partnerships, LLCs, or another type of entity—on federal, state, and local tax compliance, tax planning, and emerging tax issues.

We understand the tax laws that affect all types of transactions and industries, from real estate and brick and mortar businesses to energy, communications, and high-tech.

We also advise on the tax aspects of significant transactions, including:

  • Mergers, acquisitions, and other business combinations
  • Equity and debt offerings and financing transactions
  • Recapitalizations and restructurings
  • Redemptions and other equity repurchase transactions
  • Family business succession planning
  • Debt restructuring and bankruptcy
