Kutak Rock LLP’s national tax group works in all areas of tax law, including corporate and partnership tax planning, tax controversy and litigation, taxation of financial products, private equity, lease financing, public finance, real estate, estate and gift planning, and exempt organizations. Our national tax lawyers work closely with our firm’s other practice groups in transactional and other matters to deliver seamless advice that is responsive to the overall business and personal objectives of our clients. We pride ourselves in advancing solutions to tax problems that are practical—that meet the real constraints under which our clients operate—and provide creative, business-oriented solutions to achieve clients’ goals in each deal.
We advise our clients on the U.S. federal, state, local and international tax aspects of a wide array of business investments and transactions, including corporate acquisitions and restructurings, domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganizations (including spin-offs and split-offs), liquidations, private equity and venture capital transactions, real estate funds including REITs and REMICs, regulated investment companies, publicly traded partnerships, EB-5 matters, federal, state and local tax credit investments (LIHTC, NMTC, HRTC, R&D, manufacturing, renewable energy and business development credits), incentives, and deductions, structured finance transactions and other securities and financial products. We also provide practical, technical guidance to our clients on the tax aspects of all types of securities offerings and commercial lending transactions.
Our transactional tax attorneys have a great deal of expertise representing clients in forming, operating, restructuring and unwinding partnerships and other types of joint venture arrangements. We work to structure transactions in the most tax-efficient, creative manner, often collaborating with our clients’ outside accountants and other business advisors. In addition, we often serve as special tax counsel on transactions involving unique or especially tax-sensitive matters. We have a long history of representing clients before the IRS to obtain private letter rulings with respect to particular transactions and before the Treasury Department with respect to a wide range of tax regulatory matters.
