Mergers, Acquisitions and Reorganizations 

Helping to create real and long-lasting value from business opportunities


With today’s uncertain market conditions, some companies are seeking opportunities to invest in distressed assets or businesses, while others are looking to refinance and reposition parts of their firms.

Mergers, Acquisitions and Reorganizations

Get the right tax advice


Companies involved in any of these complex transactions can benefit from tax advice that goes beyond traditional tax compliance and due diligence.


Your company may also need to focus on tax issues and opportunities that arise both during and after the transaction, such as:


  • Restructuring for a business disposal
  • Business refinancing for an acquisition
  • Preparing for a tax-efficient deal structure.


In addition to working with private and public companies, our M&A Tax Services professionals assist financial and institutional clients, including investment funds, pension funds, sovereign funds, and private equity funds, in structuring their inbound and outbound investments.


Move quickly, but carefully


To create real and long-lasting value, you should move quickly to take advantage of market opportunities.


But you should also consider carefully all of the associated tax implications—from measuring tax liabilities in the initial due diligence phase through the structuring of the deal, to compliance in the post-merger period.


Throughout, you should look beyond compliance and develop a tax-efficient plan that meets your broader strategic business goals.
