Miller & Chevalier's lawyers excel at advising on the myriad U.S. federal tax aspects of complex, multi-billion dollar, multinational transactions. We are generally consulted for transactions with novel tax issues or that are especially tax-sensitive. We have a unique mix of specialized tax capabilities, extensive transactional experience, and both government and in-house experience. We work collaboratively with in-house specialists and external advisors.

Our client base includes U.S. and foreign-based multinationals, large partnerships, S-corporations, and privately-held companies. We analyze the tax aspects of mergers and acquisitions, spin-offs, partnership, and joint venture transactions and obtain PLRs for our clients when necessary. We assist in the negotiation and drafting of the appropriate documents, often in cross-border contexts. Our tax lawyers have experience in designing and assessing the viability of the tax consequences of innovative financial product transactions, and in developing sophisticated hedging programs for both domestic and multinational operations.
