LEADERSHIP: Joan C. Arnold

A different kind of tax practice.

We go beyond answering your tax questions and offer tax consulting services that are more comprehensive than the practices of many law firms. Our experience enables us to provide advice that is relevant to your local and global business objectives, and, because we do not serve a dual role as auditor/tax advisor, we can provide independent tax advice. Our tax professionals understand the “big picture,” and in addition to legal tax analysis, we can produce the numbers. Also, because of our M&A tax team’s Big Four background, we understand the financial statement implications of our tax advice.

The firm’s tax practice is recognized for international tax planning for large private equity firms, controversy services to companies of all sizes, corporate tax services such as transaction cost analysis studies, 382 (NOL) studies, earnings and profits analysis, repair cost studies, and other large project work. The tax practice is an integral part of the firm's corporate and investment funds practices, providing comprehensive practical advice in all manner of transactions, partnership taxation, fund formation, business tax planning, REITs, RICs, financial products, mergers and acquisitions, litigation matters, IP support, bankruptcy tax, state and local tax controversy, bond issuances and general tax advice.
