Wachtell Lipton’s tax attorneys regularly advise clients on the tax aspects of corporate reorganizations, acquisitions, spin-offs and other dispositions, joint ventures, financings, and restructurings.
These transactions frequently involve large multinational businesses and raise complex domestic and multinational tax issues. Tax considerations often determine the form and the viability of contemplated transactions. In current distressed market conditions, we work together with our corporate and restructuring and finance departments to restructure existing financial arrangements, including those arising out of private equity and other leveraged transactions. We also are involved in creating new financial products and in innovative real estate transactions and are considered preeminent in all of the areas in which we are involved. Our tax attorneys regularly publish and lecture on emerging tax issues and actively participate in the work of tax policy groups, such as the Tax Section of the New York State Bar Association and the International Fiscal Association.
