Encompassing a wide range of in-depth experience, BFKN’s Tax & Business Planning Group provides tax advice to a diverse client base in a multitude of tax-oriented practice areas. Our experienced tax attorneys are highly skilled in developing and implementing creative and efficient tax solutions for complex problems arising in the areas of domestic planning, transaction structuring, international tax matters, and federal tax controversy matters.

BFKN’s Tax & Business Planning practice goes beyond tax structuring and advice – the practice group is comprised of a diverse group of business attorneys with substantively strong tax experience who realize that the optimal tax structures are those that do not reflect a world view where tax is an end in itself. We believe this nuance is critical, manifesting itself in the pertinent tax considerations and protections that we artfully weave into our work for clients.

This unique perspective enables us to provide our solutions-oriented approach to publicly held and private corporate and real estate clients, high net worth and entrepreneurially minded individuals, partnerships, limited liability companies and other business entities, and tax-exempt organizations that are uniquely customized to their aspirations and business goals. Always keeping our clients’ goals at the forefront, BFKN’s Tax & Business Planning Group provides tax guidance in the following areas:

  • General corporate matters and mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures for domestic and international clients across all entity types.
  • Acquisition, disposition, and joint venture matters for real estate private equity funds.
  • Formation, operation, compliance, and mergers and acquisitions for public and private REITs.
  • General real estate tax planning, including UPREIT and DOWNREIT contribution transactions, 1031 exchanges, and qualified opportunity zone matters.
  • Mergers, acquisitions, dispositions, and tax-free reorganizations for financial institutions and fintech companies.
  • Debt financing transactions for both lenders and borrowers.
  • Federal tax controversy matters for business entities and high net worth individuals.
