Patrick Cox is a partner within Nixon Peabody’s M&A and Corporate Transactions practice group and member of the Tax team. He focuses on various tax aspects facing domestic and international companies and has significant experience in areas of capital markets, reorganizations, real estate, and private equity matters.
I focus my practice on developing tax strategies for complex cross border and domestic business transactions. I represent local and international firms, investors, and financial intermediaries in federal income tax matters related to capital market transactions and M&A.
I have extensive experience advising clients on inbound and outbound tax issues relating to investment in securities and real estate, IP rationalizations, tax treaty planning, and tax issues related to banking and finance, as well as creditor tax issues, including debt offerings, exchanges, and reorganizations, including bankruptcy.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, as well as subsequent tax legislation and guidance arising from COVID-19, continues to provide significant planning opportunities. As further guidance is announced, the benefits increase. Now many businesses are facing uncertain times, so my experience with distressed situations allows me to add value to companies and investors navigating these scenarios.
