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 provides 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. Since 2017, I have focused extensively on applying the rules in Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and the CARES Act of 2020 to business transactions.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 continues to provide significant planning opportunities and as further guidance is announced, the benefits increase. The COVID-19 environment has only operated to enhance the critical aspects of the TCJA, as well as spawning its own set of tax implications. Now many businesses are facing troubled times, so my experience with distressed situations is something that allows me to add value to tax planning scenarios.
