Tax Lawyers

Tax authorities nationwide, both Federal and State, have become more aggressive than ever before.  Our team has represented leading global clients in seminal tax litigation and advised on the tax dimension to numerous seminal corporate and financial transactions and commercial arrangements.  Two of our partners are Fellows of the Chartered Institute of Taxation.

We work closely with tax consultants as the occasion may arise.  We are also active on aspects of tax that are typically not the focus of tax accountants -- for example, court litigation, advice on the constitutional aspects of taxation, the actual drawing up of agreements to achieve given tax goals and assessing and working around taxes payable to company and land registries.  As lawyers, our communications with our clients enjoy unique legal privileges against disclosure.  Our work extends to:

  • Constitutional authority to impose, assess and collect taxes
  • Tax litigation and administrative proceedings
  • Tax law opinions and advice
  • Tax investigations and audits
  • Filing and prosecuting applications for tax exemptions and relief
  • Tax law reform

Virtually all of the major transactions, and many of the other transactions, that we advise on, have significant tax dimensions.  We advise and represent clients of every hue regularly in respect of federal (chiefly income, capital gains, import duty, value added tax and stamp duty), state and local government taxes especially in the following areas:

  • Tax structuring of mergers, acquisitions and other corporate transactions
  • Taxation of foreign investors and investment
  • Tax aspects of perfecting security for debt
  • Tax structuring of petroleum acreage and real estate asset acquisitions
  • Tax structuring of commercial contracts for goods and services
  • Taxation of expatriate remuneration
  • Taxation of trust structures
  • Tax aspects of securitization structures and debt transactions
  • Tax regulations for withholding tax and other “deductions at source”
