Corporate Tax

Corporate Tax

Our integrated thinking brings together corporation tax advice and legal advice

Whether you’re a public or private corporate group, a private equity backed company, a private equity fund or a hedge fund – you have a legal partner that can support you across the corporate life-cycle. An international team that can reduce the complexity and cost of dealing with multiple firms, with a full-service team offering a consistent first-class service across arrangement/scheme types, industries and jurisdictions.

What makes us different? KWM’s advice is:

  • Integrated. As a full-service law firm, we are able to streamline and project manage the advisory process. Our tax and structuring teams work closely with their colleagues in other practice areas and bridge the gap between tax considerations and legal documentation. It means that our advice is fully informed by the other legal and regulatory considerations and you do not have to facilitate that information sharing process
  • Efficient. We invest in designing the most efficient and commercial order of legal work for your deal – to reduce risk and save you money – and tax plays the first big part. For an M&A deal, this might mean us delivering tax and structuring inputs first, before the legal ‘heavy lifting’ and document drafting starts. In short, we’ll help you get across the deal structure before forming vehicles or touching the terms sheet or documenting the transfer of assets – packaging an offer that makes commercial sense to you.

Our advice on corporate tax law includes:

  • Initial public offerings
  • Secondary offerings
  • Spin-offs
  • Joint ventures
  • Partnerships
  • Trusts
  • Corporate reorganisations.
"We get a first-class, client-focused service. They understand the importance of a close relationship and invest a lot of time understanding what we do."
