Sales, Mergers & Acquisitions

    We represent buyers and sellers of businesses in a wide array of situations, from taxable to tax-free, private equity to strategic, and cash versus stock. We represent buyers or sellers businesses, from small family businesses to complex deals involving large companies. Although we usually advise solely on the tax aspects of an acquisition, we sometimes take a larger role with corporate and transactional aspects. We have decades of experience in corporate formation, mergers and acquisitions (both taxable and tax-free), dispositions, leveraged buyouts, recapitalizations, and spin-offs. We advise our clients on the tax implications of transaction alternatives, design and develop tax-advantageous structures, and draft and negotiate the tax provisions of related transaction documents.
