Cadwalader tax attorneys have extensive experience working with our Financial Restructuring team on the special tax issues of troubled and insolvent corporations and other entities, including preserving debtors' net operating losses and other tax attributes and achieving viable restructurings. We represent both debtors and creditors, as well as investors, committees and other creditor groups, in cross-border restructurings, bankruptcy proceedings, workouts and other distressed situations.
Our practice is international in scope and our domestic offices work closely with our London attorneys in connection with cross-border financings. By using a multidisciplinary approach, our clients benefit from Cadwalader’s strong experience in finance, capital markets, financial restructuring, bankruptcy, litigation, regulation, corporate transactions, and tax structuring.
Given the effort expended when structuring transactions to maximize tax and pension-related efficiencies for all parties, it is imperative to take those efficiencies into account when developing a restructuring strategy. Our attorneys have extensive experience in advising a variety of clients on the tax ramifications of workouts, foreclosures and bankruptcies. Our expertise encompasses all bankruptcy-related tax matters, including international tax, which is critical to workouts involving restructuring foreign debt or investment of new money by foreign companies, as well as ERISA issues, and REMIC tax issues.
