Tax issues can play a major role in the successful negotiation and closure of any business transaction. The experienced tax lawyers of Troutman Sanders have extensive history helping clients identify, structure and implement tax solutions with respect to all types of business transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, corporate divisions, joint ventures and strategic alliances.
In conjunction with lawyers from our finance practice, we provide full-spectrum tax counsel related to corporate financings, project financings, leveraged leases and the taxation of financial products. We also advise clients on tax issues arising out of bankruptcies, workouts, reorganizations, restructurings and recapitalizations. Together with our corporate and securities lawyers, we provide guidance in connection with the issuance of tax-exempt bonds, and regularly serve as bond counsel and as counsel to issuers, underwriters, lenders and borrowers.
We have developed a particular concentration on tax issues relating to real estate transactions, and have structured various types of real estate-related investments, joint ventures and exchanges, including low-income housing tax credit projects, real estate investment trusts and like-kind exchanges.
