This CLE/CPE webinar will guide counsel and tax professionals on key tax provisions that could substantially affect the structuring, pricing, and financing of mergers and acquisitions. The panel will discuss applicable tax provisions under current tax law, tax-related aspects of M&A negotiations requiring careful considerations, and best practices to avoid tax pitfalls.


The tax implications of mergers and acquisitions can be significant, requiring counsel and advisers to reconcile key tax provisions when negotiating and structuring M&A transactions. The tax-related aspects of M&A transactions require careful analysis and due diligence to avoid unintended tax liabilities for buyers and sellers.

The intent of several provisions under current tax law is to raise revenue, with many of them having a particular impact on M&A activities. Specifically, the limitations on the deductibility of interest, the limitations on the use of NOLs, a required withholding tax on the purchase price paid in certain transactions, the imposition of the transition tax, and other factors may impact the structuring, pricing, and negotiation of an M&A transaction.

Listen as our panel discusses the complex tax laws impacting M&A transactions and best practices and tips for structuring M&A transactions.
