M&A tax

We advise on the tax aspects of a wide range of corporate transactions, acting for corporate groups, institutional investors, investment funds and executives.

We work closely with our corporate and M&A team to ensure deals are implemented efficiently from a tax perspective and that tax implications and risks are properly addressed. Unusually for a law firm, we also advise private equity fund clients on the structuring of their investments.

Our range of services includes:

  • advising on the full range of corporate transactions, including public and private M&A, joint ventures, IPOs, demergers, returns of capital, and restructurings;
  • advising private equity funds on the optimum structure for their investments, including in relation to transfer pricing and the new corporate interest restriction and anti-hybrid rules; and
  • advising management teams of private equity backed companies on their equity incentive and co-investment arrangements, including in relation to rollover treatment and entrepreneurs’ relief.
