Tax

Our team draws upon its in-depth experience to provide creative and thoughtful advice on sophisticated tax matters relating to mergers and acquisitions, private equity and real estate transactions, bankruptcy and insolvency restructurings, private funds, REITs, partnerships and joint ventures, commodities and derivatives, securitizations and insurance company products.

We are an integral part of our corporate and private funds teams, advising on mergers, acquisitions, internal corporate restructurings, fund formations and private equity transactions. We advise on structuring complex onshore and offshore funds for all classes of U.S. and non-U.S. investors investing in a variety of asset classes, including real estate, infrastructure, credit, distressed debt and insurance, commodities and energy products. We also assist our commodities and derivatives and insurance teams in structuring financial products, corporate acquisitions and internal reorganizations.

Partnering with our real estate team, we advise on the tax implications and structuring of real estate transactions. We advise on acquisitions, exchanges (taxable and tax-free), dispositions, joint ventures, commercial real estate leases, partnership tax issues and joint venture arrangements. We also specialize in REIT formation and qualification, as well as acquisitions, dispositions and other transactions involving REITs. In addition, we advise individuals, U.S. pension plans and other tax-exempt institutions, and non-U.S. investors, including foreign governments and qualified foreign pension funds, on structuring their real estate investments to mitigate exposure to tax and tax-filing obligations relating to UBTI and FIRPTA.

We collaborate with our financial restructuring team on high-profile reorganizations and workouts, equity and debt financings and restructurings. Our team regularly advises on structuring transactions to minimize the impact of debt cancellation income and limitations on net operating losses, preserving tax assets and maximizing the tax benefits available to a distressed company following its restructuring.
