Tax & Tax Structuring

Reitler’s Tax practice fuses a precise understanding of complex and evolving tax law with creativity in both formulating  proposed transactions and solving tax problems.

This ability is valued by our clients because they understand that receiving expert, thoughtful tax advice has an immense impact in their achieving a successful outcome. Our Tax practice has provided clients with strategies for reducing tax liabilities in numerous transaction types, including: mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures, venture capital investments, corporate restructurings and bankruptcies, licensing transactions, investment partnerships and funds, project and lease financings, real estate transactions, cross-border direct investments, derivatives and structured finance.

In corporate reorganizations, our Tax practice is actively involved in providing advice on tax-deferred and triangular mergers, among others, and offers counsel on issues such as the best use of net operating loss carryovers, and other tax attributes, in the context of reorganizations.

Additionally, our group supports Reitler’s Venture Capital and Emerging Companies practice by providing advice in connection with equity financings, corporate and limited liability company structuring, equity incentive plans, and equity compensation, convertible debt offerings and exchanges, preferred stock recapitalizations and other related matters.

Frequently, the Tax practice works with clients whose transactions have international tax aspects. In such cases, we are able to draw upon our expertise regarding tax consequences under applicable tax treaties, withholding questions, transfer pricing issues, foreign tax credit planning, and U.S. tax aspects of international reorganizations, to address the unique needs of the client.
