If you are considering seeking advice from counsel, here is what we suggest you keep in mind:
- You want to consult with legal counsel as early in the transactional planning process as possible.
- You want to choose knowledgeable and experienced tax lawyers/advisors who can integrate tax-oriented approaches with the non-tax planning aspects of the transaction from its inception.
- You want to consider all available alternatives to accomplish the transaction with minimal taxes, legal, regulatory and business adverse effects.
