U.S. & International Tax TransactionsStrategic Transactions
Doing business across multiple jurisdictions is now the norm — and so are the tax consequences. At Kilpatrick Townsend, we advise clients — startups to Fortune 100 global companies — on a broad range of business transactions in the U.S., cross border, and overseas. Our U.S.-based services include mergers and acquisitions, dispositions, corporate restructurings, joint ventures, real estate transactions, spinoffs and other corporate separations, corporate formations, financings (including structured and leveraged finance), and renewable energy transactions. To help our cross-border and non-U.S. clients minimize their worldwide tax costs, we structure many diverse U.S. inbound and outbound transactions — under both U.S. federal and non-U.S. tax systems — including tax planning for expanding operations, acquisitions and joint ventures, off-shore financing techniques, and cross-border securities offerings.
