Tax Structuring

Overview


One of the first and most critical steps in any tax-planning process is the creation of effective financial and tax structures that can withstand the scrutiny of taxing authorities and regulatory agencies. McDermott’s experienced tax lawyers work with closely held businesses, publicly traded corporations and multinational enterprises to develop, document and implement cutting-edge solutions that help achieve business objectives and minimize tax liabilities.

Our closely held business group focuses on the unique tax, corporate and other issues facing privately held businesses and their owners, with a focus on family-owned businesses. Our corporate taxation team offers a broad range of tax structuring counsel to tax clients and their affiliates organized as C corporations for US federal income tax purposes. The Firm’s pass-through taxation lawyers advise on the use of partnerships, limited liability companies, S corporations, real estate investment trusts (REITs), and other pass-through entities in sophisticated tax planning.
