Tax Planning and Structuring
We regularly advise on complex cross-border and domestic transactions, with the principal objective of achieving practical and tax-efficient solutions for our clients. We represent a wide variety of business entities, both taxable and tax-exempt, in a wide range of matters. Being a full-service firm, our tax lawyers are also able to work closely with our teams in other practice groups to provide comprehensive advice on diverse tax matters, ranging from M&A and corporate reorganization, to directors' and expatriates' remuneration, stock options or other forms of compensation. Because of our extensive experience in tax matters, we are also often able to achieve successful outcomes for our clients.
Highlights of some of our recent work include advising on:
- the tax implications of cutting-edge and complex financial transactions and products;
- the reduction of future corporate tax risks through novel tax strategies, based on judicial and administrative precedents as well as the latest academic research; and
- inheritance tax, gift tax, consumption tax (VAT), customs duty, energy-related taxes (such as petroleum and coal tax and light oil delivery tax, among others) and local (i.e., municipal) taxes.
