The tax work was led by Tax partner Marc Silberberg and the rest of the deal team included Transactions practice co-chair Frederick Green; Technology & IP Transactions partner Jeffrey Osterman; Data Privacy partner Randi Singer; Executive Compensation & Benefits practice head Paul Wessel, and Public Company Advisory Group counsel Adé Heyliger.
The International Tax Review monthly publication focuses on cross-border tax issues and, in addition to news and analysis, provides commentary on developments in different jurisdictions around the world. The awards recognize those firms that have shown innovation and impact in their work.
