International Tax

To compete in a global market, our clients rely on the experience of Arent Fox's tax professionals when cross-border opportunities present themselves.

Acquisition and Disposition Planning

Tax is an integral part of any business acquisition or disposition. Arent Fox tax attorneys work routinely with practitioners from our real estate, corporate, estate planning and other practice groups to structure business acquisitions, dispositions, mergers, joint ventures, asset and stock sales/purchases, and business successions. The Arent Fox tax group helps clients understand and manage the tax risks and opportunities revealed during due diligence and coordinates technical expertise with business knowledge to create optimal solutions for our clients.

Arent Fox is well versed in both tax-free and taxable acquisition and disposition planning. For example, Arent Fox has executed like-kind exchanges, partnership and corporate mergers, and property acquisitions for clients. Similarly, Arent Fox has structured “cash out” and taxable acquisitions and dispositions for its clients. Arent Fox has extensive experience with public and private offerings of tax-sensitive securities and the preparation of offering materials.

Inbound and Outbound Structuring
