The economic viability of many energy projects can be a difficult balancing act but careful tax planning can make a significant difference to the bottom line. Our worldwide network of tax attorneys can add substantial value to any transaction at many levels. We advise on local and international tax planning to help our clients meet their business objectives while minimizing their overall tax exposure.
Many of our clients enjoy substantial cost savings with careful initial planning and organizational structuring advice. On many of the transactions on which we have advised in the renewable sector for example, we have assisted clients in structuring their transactions to monetize production tax credits, investment tax credits and other subsidies and incentives associated with geothermal, wind, biomass and other renewable energy projects that enhance financing options.
We also have significant experience working with and structuring master limited partnerships, private equity and hedge funds ownership and investment issues, domestic and cross-border restructuring and related planning, mergers and acquisitions, administrative appeals and litigation, legislation and government relations, obtaining private letter rulings, leasing issues and real estate tax issues.
