Q & A
How would you explain the practice of a corporate tax attorney?

Corporate tax lawyers work as an integral part of a team guiding clients through all aspects of a commercial business transaction. This covers a wide and multifaceted arena of tax counseling that includes mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and partnerships, financing transactions, debt modification and restructuring, cross-border transactions, investment fund structuring and operations, and many others. Some clients will need advice on several of these areas for a single transaction. Every transaction has unique tax consequences and business risks. My goal as a corporate tax attorney is to help clients understand all the options they have, help guide them towards the solution that best suits their needs, and structure the transaction accordingly taking into account all of the complexities involved.
