International tax planning
Understanding the complex requirements of taxation is important for every business, whether or not engaged in international activity. International operations mean not only additional U.S. tax issues, but also tax issues in the other jurisdiction, and this requires careful planning and competent advice. Our international tax attorneys understand and counsel clients in this complex area, particularly in matters involving transfer pricing issues; business and transaction structures to minimize adverse tax impacts; tax withholding and reporting issues; source, allocation and taxation of various types of income; and recognition of deductions and credits. They also frequently are called upon to assist individual clients with international estate planning and wealth preservation mechanisms.
