Cadwalader partner Adam Blakemore last week participated as a speaker at the IBA’s 11th annual Finance and Capital Markets Tax Conference. The event, held virtually this year, is an annual gathering for finance professionals and academics to learn about the latest advances in corporate finance, tax and capital markets.
Blakemore’s panel, “The Impact of Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) on International Finance,” focused on the impact of BEPS on international finance. He was joined by a group of international panelists, including Sylvia Dikmans, a partner at Houthoff; Mark H. Leeds, a partner at Mayer Brown; Stefan Mayer, a partner at Gleiss Lutz; Michael Nordin, a partner at Schellenberg Wittmer; Rebeca Rodriguez Martínez, a partner at Cuatrecasas; and chair Guglielmo Maisto, a partner at Maisto e Associati.
More specifically, Blakemore addressed the following:
“The IBA’s annual Finance and Capital Markets Tax Conference has fast become an unmissable event in UK tax practitioners’ calendars,” Blakemore said. “It offers an excellent opportunity to discuss a wide range of taxation questions and challenges in a finance and capital markets context with clients and other professionals. With the challenges of a post-pandemic world and an increasingly inter-connected business landscape, the topics discussed at the conference are of paramount interest for professionals who must keep up to date with this essential area of taxation law.”
A tax partner in Cadwalader’s London, Blakemore advises on the taxation aspects of structuring domestic and cross-border corporate and financing transactions, including securitisations, hybrid capital issuances, repackagings, credit linked instruments, stock lending arrangements and a variety of financial products. His practice also involves acting on restructurings in solvent and distressed debt situations, corporate reorganisations and reconstructions, with a particular interest in the structuring and restructuring of investment funds, asset management entities and private equity financings.
