Cross-Border Tax

The explosive growth of cross-border transactions has led Congress to increase its scrutiny of acquisitions involving U.S. companies. Now more than ever, international business planning cannot be effective without a thorough understanding of the increasingly more complex and critical tax implications of international and cross-border transactions.

To guide our clients through the process, Kaye Scholer has assembled a team of recognized leaders in the areas of national security, tax and corporate law. In the tax area, our team has significant experience in all aspects of U.S. acquisitions and financing from the unique perspective of the non-U.S. client.

Our tax lawyers:

  • structure cross-border mergers, acquisitions, financings and divestitures
  • develop efficient structures for U.S. operations
  • assist multinational corporations in post-merger integration and international tax controversy matters.
