One of the primary fields of the firm’s expertise relates to rendering advice on the tax effects of international transactions of all types, involving both U.S. businesses and individuals making investments abroad and foreign businesses and individuals making investments in the United States. Typical transactions involve the formation or purchase of a subsidiary in another country, joint venture arrangements with participants in different countries, and the furnishing of goods, intellectual property and services across international boundaries. Of course, the firm has expertise with respect to the tax aspects of all U.S. corporate, partnership and acquisition matters, such as the formation, acquisition and reorganization of subsidiaries, acquisitions of businesses and investments in real estate, and tax-favored financing structures.

We have also advised clients with regard to disputes involving tax issues, estate and gift planning, tax aspects of immigration, charitable giving, and executive compensation matters.
