Ledgewood Fous Areas - Real Estate

Focus Areas - Tax

Our tax department regularly advises clients on the tax aspects of corporate reorganization, acquisitions, spin-offs and other dispositions, joint ventures, financings and restructurings.  These transactions frequently raise complex tax issues.  Indeed, tax considerations often determine the form, and occasionally the viability, of contemplated transactions.  Our tax department also is involved in creating new financial products and in innovative real estate transactions. 

Examples of major recent transactions in which our tax expertise has played a
formative role include:

  • Tax-free spinoff of an energy company from its specialty finance parent, including obtaining a private letter ruling from the Internal Revenue Service;

  • Acquisition of leasing companies and portfolios of leases;

  • Acquisition of natural gas properties;

  • Issuance of billions of dollars of equity and debt securities in public, private and PIPE transactions;

  • Public offerings of Specialty Purpose Acquisition Companies and analysis of proposed acquisitions; and

  • Compliance analysis for publicly-traded REITS.
