We have assisted companies that are contemplating mergers and acquisitions in various tax planning aspects, such as determining whether a client should purchase the stock or assets of a company and what tax attributes carry over to the client in these arrangements. Net operating losses and other carryforwards come into play with regard to the consolidated groups, and these complications need to be addressed in the structuring of transactions so that the positive tax attributes are not lost.

In addition to the structure of the deal, choice of entity issues arise and need to be addressed to create the best available operational unit for our client’s goals. Our experience in this area of taxation can help in getting deals structured and completed in the most tax-advantageous way.
