With tax laws constantly changing and becoming more complex, having a team of experienced and creative tax lawyers is more critical than ever. The quality of tax advice that companies, business founders and individuals receive can mean the difference between huge tax savings and a huge tax burden. Whether it’s an investment, a purchase of a company, or the sale of a closely-held family business, the tax advice received in connection therewith can mean either success or failure.
Our Tax Department attorneys provide clients with innovative and practical tax solutions for their matters while learning the ins and outs of the clients’ needs and future goals. We are there to assist our clients with every step of their decision-making, from business formation and choice of entity, the tax aspects of transaction financing, to the choice of structure for the clients’ investment and exit transactions.
