Leading companies require legal partners who not only understand the nature of their transactions and their businesses, but who also deliver value by demonstrating sound judgment. With approximately 75 lawyers, including 28 partners, Weil’s Tax Department has played a key role in delivering value to the firm’s clients, particularly when the complex universe of tax law can make or break a crucial transaction. Our lawyers pride themselves on their ability to generate intelligent, tax-efficient solutions, whatever the nature of the transaction.
Described by Chambers USA as being “head and shoulders above the competition,” Weil’s tax practice is integrated with the firm’s extensive mergers and acquisitions team, structuring complex, innovative, taxable and tax-free transactions, including joint ventures and spin-offs, and also regularly counsels the firm’s clients in the private equity, venture capital, and investment funds marketplace. Our practice is global in orientation, representing clients in cross-border deals where achieving tax-efficient structures is a significant driver of value.
Outside of the private equity and M&A sphere, our lawyers also provide tax counsel in connection with high-profile restructurings and workouts, as well as financing arrangements, capital markets transactions, executive compensation, employee benefits and pension plans, non-profit organizations, real estate, recapitalizations, and securitization and structured financings.
