Tax > International Tax

In a global marketplace, almost every action by a corporation has a cross-border component. Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP’s international tax lawyers excel at providing practical advice on complex international transactions and structures. We regularly advise on international tax matters of all types, including:

  • cross-border acquisitions, reorganizations and joint ventures
  • post-acquisition integration planning
  • inbound and outbound investments
  • international capital market transactions
  • derivatives and financial products
  • expatriation structures
  • cross-border investment management structures 
  • international tax disputes and compliance 
  • transfer pricing

We bring strategic advice and innovative solutions to clients with cross-border business activities. Tax planning can reduce the cost of acquiring a target group, and it can facilitate a foreign acquirer’s acquisition of a U.S. target. Our tax attorneys work with tax counsel and advisors in foreign jurisdictions to develop structures that are tax-efficient from both a U.S. and a foreign tax perspective.

Many of the sophisticated transactions and financial products developed in the United States can be useful in similar situations abroad. However, foreign tax and regulatory concerns often make use of the identical transaction or product impractical or impossible. The global knowledge and experience of the tax team means that the firm is best placed to advise on the restructuring of these transactions and products to address restrictions in foreign jurisdictions and the specific concerns of international clients.
