Our tax attorneys have particular experience handling tax planning for a wide variety of sophisticated transactions and other tax matters having federal, state, local and foreign tax implications. Our clients range from individuals and closely held companies to multinational corporations. The unique combination of governmental, financial and legal experience of our tax attorneys enables us to deliver both proactive and practical tax advice.
Our tax attorneys also provide counsel on foreign tax matters, including international mergers and acquisitions, structuring inbound and outbound investments, branch profits tax, transfer pricing, interest stripping, employee migration, tax withholding and tax treaties. We routinely provide tax advice to foreign companies entering the U.S. market and to U.S based companies establishing foreign entities, including hybrid entities, controlled foreign corporations, foreign personal holding companies and passive foreign investment companies. Our attorneys are also experienced with structuring intercompany borrowings and management and service agreements; maximization of foreign tax credits on worldwide income; tax planning for employees being transferred to foreign jurisdictions; tax residency issues; pension and other employment issues relating to employees of foreign affiliates; and any other international tax issues our clients may have. With the addition of offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai, the Firm is now able to provide local counsel to companies doing business throughout Asia.
