Sidley’s tax lawyers work together seamlessly with our M&A, private equity, finance and corporate governance colleagues to provide our clients with sophisticated tax advice on the full spectrum of M&A and private equity transactions across a variety of industries. Our clients include some of the world’s most prominent public and private companies; leading private equity, energy, infrastructure, real estate and sovereign wealth funds; and financial advisers.
As a global tax practice, our lawyers collaborate across the firm’s offices in key business hubs worldwide to advise clients on the tax consequences of virtually all types of sophisticated cross-border transactions. This includes setting up investment structures and assisting with acquisitions, dispositions, joint ventures, leveraged buyouts, mergers, recapitalizations, spin-offs, exits (including IPOs), and other business restructurings.
About Our Team
Strong leadership and collaboration on behalf of our clients has earned our team recognition from prominent industry organizations, including The M&A Advisor, which honored Sidley in 2019 with its “Private Equity Deal of the Year (Over $1B)” award for our representation of TransUnion in its acquisition of Callcredit. In 2018, The Deal Awards recognized Sempra Energy’s $9.6 billion acquisition of Oncor Electric Delivery Company as “Deal of the Year.” Sidley represented Morgan Stanley, RBC Capital and the other underwriters in the deal.
