Winston & Strawn's tax attorneys provide a broad range of tax planning services for the businesses and transactions of our large domestic and foreign-based clients. These clients represent all major sectors of the global economy.
Our work in this area includes the development and utilization of tax-advantaged financings and derivative transactions, structuring foreign investment in U.S. real estate; corporate acquisitions, dispositions, joint ventures, and reorganizations; Subpart F issues; international joint ventures and reorganizations; and REITs. We also assist many U.S.-based multinationals in connection with foreign tax credit planning, including the reduction in the effective rate of foreign tax of the foreign members of the group and the utilization of hybrid structures.
In conjunction with our investment management practice, Winston's tax attorneys provide advice concerning the structuring (and re-structuring) of collective investment vehicles and their managers, the tax effects of particular investments, and the disclosure to investors of relevant tax matters.
Winston & Strawn tax attorneys also regularly represent U.S. borrowers and non-U.S. lenders in cross-border repurchase transactions involving varied structures and foreign jurisdictions.
