Fund Formation Services
Selborne Legal Consulting’s fund specialists have helped structure, negotiate and launch a wide variety of successful private investment funds. We help syndicators, private equity funds, venture capitalists, hedge fund managers, and other investors launch private equity, hedge strategies, real estate, and family office funds with diverse portfolios. Our fund clients trust us to launch their new ventures because we treat our clients’ success as our own. We work closely with every client throughout the formation process to ensure that every newly created fund meets their growth goals while also remaining agile enough to adjust to changing market landscapes.
In addition to providing fund formation strategy, we advise fund sponsors, managers, and family members on all relevant securities and private equity laws, finance regulations, and ongoing investor responsibilities. Our services also extend beyond launch. We are available to help clients navigate all aspects of day-to-day fund and portfolio management.
Our mergers and acquisition lawyers maximize value for our M&A clients with the most current industry-specific expertise. As a boutique M&A law firm, we have built a reputation as trusted advisors to M&A clients across a broad spectrum of industries. We advise buyers, sellers, public and private companies, directors, and investors and funds in all stages of the M&A lifecycle. We are available to help clients find and evaluate M&A opportunities, conduct thorough due diligence, and advise our clients and key stakeholders through post-deal integration.
We understand that every merger or acquisition requires the attention of an experienced team. To ensure our clients receive the proper legal strategy they need, we established an M&A practice group consisting of our top M&A legal advisors.
Selborne Legal Consulting provides clients with forward-thinking tax planning solutions that account for the short- and long-term goals. We work closely with our clients to strategically analyze tax aspects of corporate reorganizations, acquisitions and other dispositions, joint ventures, financing rounds, and restructurings.
Transactional Tax Planning
Tax planning is a critical element of almost every transaction and investment. Instead of treating tax as a compliance exercise, our specialists approach your tax needs so that tax planning becomes a proactive opportunity. Our planning services will put you in the best post-deal position by adding value and minimizing financial risk.
Selborne Legal Consulting is prepared to advise you on state, federal and international tax implications associated with a wide range of financial transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, structuring and reorganizing business entities, joint ventures, real estate transactions, compensation, and cross-border transactions.
In our years of assisting domestic and international clients, we have successfully addressed complex international tax implications in many jurisdictions to achieve globally tax-efficient solutions. We are available to advise public and private companies on all aspects of ownership structure, operations, foreign tax credits, cross border transactions, among other common international tax issues. We also provide expertise in modeling the tax impact of transactions as well as the ongoing tax impacts of the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
INTERNATIONAL CORPORATE REORGANIZATIONS
For many years, Selborne Legal Consulting has helped international businesses review their corporate structure to ensure it provides the most effective means of achieving key business goals in a global tax landscape. As tax planning consultants, we will work tirelessly to put our clients in the best strategic position to execute their commercial plans while ensuring appropriate tax efficiency.
