Generators of innovative, tax efficient solutions to full range of transactional issues
Counsel clients seeking to minimize tax burden associated with ongoing operations
The complex universe of tax law can make or break a crucial corporate transaction. Leading companies today require legal partners who not only understand the nature of their transactions, but who also bring a detailed and sophisticated understanding of their businesses along with sound judgment, allowing them to provide real, value-driven advice. A key ingredient to any deal today, domestic or international, is the ability to generate innovative, tax-efficient solutions, whatever the nature of the transaction.
Described by Chambers USA as having “true eminence due to its extensive proficiency in key areas,” Weil's Tax practice helps clients across the full array of corporate transactions. The Tax practice is integrated with the firm’s extensive M&A team, structuring complex and innovative, taxable and tax-free transactions, and also regularly counsels the firm’s world-class clients in the private equity, venture capital, and investment funds marketplace.
With tax professionals in Weil offices around the world, the Tax practice advises on cross-border transactions, as well as transactions confined within the United States or taking place entirely outside the United States; routinely designing structures to achieve not only transaction-related tax efficiencies and benefits, but also post-transaction structures best suited to allow international holdings that achieve tax-efficient, and thereby maximally competitive, operations. The nature of these transactions ranges broadly from acquisitions and dispositions, to business divisions and spin-offs, to joint ventures, partnerships, and other business combinations.
