The Tax Practice Group devotes substantial time to transactional work, including taxable and nontaxable acquisitions, dispositions, reorganizations, recapitalizations, divisions and consolidations.
Members of the group work closely with clients and the firm's Mergers & Acquisitions, Private Equity and Venture Capital teams in an effort to obtain the most efficient result from both a tax and a business perspective. Members of the group are adept at handling all aspects of a transaction and have developed the skills necessary to offer practical tax solutions to a wide variety of tax-related issues. Our tax attorneys have been instrumental in developing and implementing numerous unique and creative solutions to meet clients' needs and desires.
Nearly all business transactions involve employee benefits issues of some sort. Our benefits practitioners recognize the opportunities and risks that these situations can present. We detect problems during the due diligence review process and assist our clients (whether buying or selling) to correct these failures using the applicable IRS or DOL program. However, we look beyond the basic due diligence review and provide planning and transition advice to our clients. We work with our Corporate Practice Group to structure changes in an efficient and seamless fashion.
