Tax Planning

Tax planning on behalf of our individual and business clients is perhaps the most vital function of the tax group's practice. Our advice touches on a wide range of factual situations, including:

  • Choice of entity for business operations including Subchapter C and S corporations, partnerships, and limited liability entities
  • Corporate combinations and divisions
  • Business and asset acquisitions
  • Succession planning for family business interests
  • Partnership, limited liability companies and corporate design and structure
  • Advantageous use of limited liability companies
  • Tax aspects of syndications and private placements
  • Choice of entity for professional practice
  • Tax aspects of bankruptcies and workouts
  • Like-kind exchanges of real and personal property
  • Tax consequences of international business transactions
  • Deferred compensation and other retirement strategies
  • Withholding and employment tax liabilities
  • Employee vs. independent contractor issues
  • Lease vs. purchase decisions
  • Hospital/practitioner joint ventures

Tax attorneys at Clark Hill keep pace with the most current developments and tax planning techniques, but our philosophy is always to operate well within the client's realm of comfort as well as the law's structures.
