The tax department works extensively with the corporate and real estate practice groups to advise real estate investors, developers, syndicators, and other professionals. This advice often concerns tax issues in the formation of partnerships and limited liability companies and in the acquisition, operation, and disposition of properties.
The tax department also assists clients in structuring mergers and acquisitions, redemptions, and similar transactions. We help clients understand the tax ramifications of specific ways of structuring these agreements.
We have also assisted our clients in structuring a range of new business ventures, including their executive compensation programs and compensation and option plans.
In addition, we have extensive experience representing taxpayers under audit and in tax controversies before federal, state, and local tax authorities.
