Hughes Hubbard & Reed’s Tax group provides sophisticated analysis and advice on a wide range of complex tax issues and planning techniques. Our team is recognized by peers and clients alike for its intellectual prowess and praised for “rolling up its sleeves” and “getting in there” to come up with solutions. We tackle our clients’ most complicated and technical issues, whether it’s structuring a corporate transaction, providing strategic advice on domestic and international tax planning or handling a tax dispute.
On the transactional side, our team advises on domestic and international mergers and acquisitions, spin-offs, joint ventures, bankruptcies, reorganizations, equipment and aircraft leases, placement of off-shore investment funds and securitizations and securities offerings. Our team is particularly experienced in the area of equipment and aviation finance. We have provided critical tax advice on several transactions named “Deals of the Year” by Airfinance Journal.
Combining sophisticated technical skill and creative problem-solving, our team counsels clients on both domestic and international tax planning. We provide high level advice to foreign clients on structuring their US business and investment activities, as well as US clients on structuring their domestic and foreign activities. We also advise clients on the development of tax-advantaged financial products, tax-efficient capitalization structuring, executive compensation and business restructurings.
In addition to our transactional and planning work, we also handle sensitive tax disputes for clients. With assistance from the firm’s Litigation department where appropriate, we have represented clients in federal and state courts throughout the US. We have also represented clients in federal audit and appeals office proceedings, as well as state and local administrative proceedings.
