Fox Rothschild’s Taxation and Wealth Planning attorneys advise clients on the federal income tax impacts of engaging in various business transactions, including the tax issues related to the formation and operation of a business entity, to making operating distributions, to structuring compensation of key employees, including deferred compensation arrangements, and to the alternatives of structuring the sale of a business or the admission of new investors. Our tax lawyers are continually assessing developments that stem from the ever-changing landscape of federal and state income tax laws, the passage of new legislation, administrative announcements, regulations and case law, and we incorporate those updates into our evaluations of various business situations. We also work closely with the firm’s corporate attorneys to ensure that business transactions are properly structured from an economic, legal and tax perspective.
Our international tax practice continues to grow as our clients expand their interest in making investments in foreign businesses or broadening the reach of their local business into foreign markets. Our international tax practitioners work on various types of structures that consider domestic and foreign tax laws and applicable tax treaties. Our experience in international taxation covers both North and South America; countries in the European Union, eastern Europe and Russia and various parts of the Middle East, including Israel; and countries in the Pacific Rim, including the People’s Republic of China, Japan and Australia.
Our tax lawyers also represent clients in matters before the National Office of the Internal Revenue Service and various state departments of revenue, including seeking favorable tax rulings, submitting comments to proposed tax legislation or representing a client seeking a positive change in the tax law.
