Cahill Logo


Our tax lawyers develop innovative business-oriented tax solutions for domestic and cross-border transactions of nearly every kind and description. Reflecting the practice of the firm as a whole, we regularly advise some of the world’s largest companies on taxable and tax-free mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, spin-offs and other corporate reorganizations, redomestications, debt and equity financings, global enterprise planning, bankruptcies, and insolvency restructurings, private equity transactions (including leveraged and management buy-outs), partnerships and joint ventures, investment and hedge funds, financial products, insurance vehicles and products, executive compensation, employee benefits and pension plans, real estate investment trusts, and other real estate ventures. Such matters frequently raise novel tax issues, and often entail our requesting formal guidance from the Internal Revenue Service on our clients’ behalf. Cahill’s Tax practice is ranked in The Legal 500, as well as Chambers USA in New York, with a client commenting, “The whole team is highly skilled, capable and they always have plenty of resources for whatever arises.”

Our clients demand ingenuity, imagination, and skill matched with the utmost integrity. As tax generalists, we have resisted the trend toward increased specialization adopted by many firms because we and our clients believe they derive significant benefits from our comprehensive, unfettered approach. We are often retained by clients to provide independent tax advice in transactions where the firm is not otherwise representing a party.

We work closely with our clients’ business, financial, and legal teams, investment bankers, and tax accountants in planning, negotiating, and executing cutting-edge transactions and structures designed to maximize tax efficiencies with due regard for business practicalities and the unique constraints under which each client operates. From the earliest stages of a transaction, we work with our colleagues in the firm’s other practice areas to optimize results for our clients in a seamless manner.
