International Tax

International Tax

GHJ's experience includes assisting companies outside of the U.S. to enter the U.S. markets as well as assisting U.S. companies in expanding their footprint globally.

Many of GHJ's clients operate in non-U.S. jurisdictions. The complexity of the U.S. tax system is compounded by the intricacies of U.S. taxation of overseas operations. A simple flaw in the structure could lead to costly traps and may have unintended consequences. GHJ works with clients to find solutions for structuring transactions in ways that minimize the effective tax rate on a worldwide basis. GHJ's International Tax Practice is very experienced in dealing with these complex rules.
