Protecting and maximizing your deal

Whether you are buying or selling, tax issues can complicate every deal. Finding a transaction structure that meets the needs of the buyer and the seller, achieving a step-up in tax basis, and determining whether and how net operating losses, carryforwards and other tax attributes can be utilized are complex issues that need to be addressed.
