For taxpayers in the global economy, success depends on compliance with a diverse and ever-evolving array of tax rules. Tax policies are constantly in flux, and they vary widely in different national, regional, and local jurisdictions. A deep understanding of these myriad tax regimes—as well as the interplay between them—can mean the difference between profitable transactions and harsh penalties.
LHP has a fully integrated global tax practice and is one of the few international law firms with US, Korea, and Latin America tax capabilities. We provide comprehensive and strategic tax planning advice, combining a thorough knowledge of complex tax laws with a pragmatic problem-solving approach to our clients’ tax issues. We serve corporations, financial institutions, private equity funds, state and local agencies, and individuals in a wide variety of transactions ranging from routine corporate formations to some of the world’s largest, most complex mergers and acquisitions.
We often act as special tax counsel on transactions that are particularly tax-sensitive or involve emerging tax issues, such as fund-raising in new markets, secondary transactions, cross-border joint ventures, business mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganizations (including spin-offs and split-offs), liquidations, and other divestitures. Our goal is to maximize after-tax results for our clients within applicable laws and regulations. We are also known for our thorough knowledge of partnership laws and our focused experience in entertainment transactions.
