O’Melveny helps clients maximize after-tax results while meeting all the laws and regulations they face. With a fully integrated global tax practice and as one of the few international law firms with US, UK and Chinese tax capabilities, we understand myriad tax regimes and the interplay between them, which means the difference between profitable transactions and harsh penalties.

We provide comprehensive and strategic tax planning advice, combining a thorough knowledge of complex tax laws with a pragmatic problem-solving approach to our clients’ tax issues. Our clients include corporations, financial institutions, private equity funds, state and local agencies, and individuals, who we support in transactions ranging from routine corporate formations to large, complex mergers and acquisitions.

Clients often turn to us to act as special tax counsel on transactions that are particularly tax-sensitive or involve emerging tax issues, such as fund-raising in new markets, secondary transactions, cross- border joint ventures, business mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganizations (including spin-offs and split-offs), liquidations, and other divestitures.
