Our attorneys provide creative tax advice in corporate and general business matters, helping companies form, reorganize, and when necessary, dissolve their business entity structures to take maximum advantage of the tax code. We are well-versed in all tax aspects of business combinations involving stock and asset purchases and sales, leveraged buyouts, mergers, and spinoffs, including tax-free reorganizations through acquisition and divestiture. Our attorneys show clients the most tax-efficient approaches to financing their growth through public debt and equity issues, debt and equity restructurings, and sophisticated public and private financing transactions. When troubled companies seek relief under the bankruptcy code, our tax advice can help realize the greatest return from any necessary reorganization or liquidation.
We also provide routine general corporate tax advice relating to business operations and tax reporting and consolidated returns. Our attorneys regularly obtain technical advice and rulings from the Internal Revenue Service on specific transactions.
Thompson & Knight has an “experienced tax team handling the full range of corporate tax matters,” according to Chambers USA 2015.
