We are increasingly seeing companies changing their residency or holding company jurisdiction, either as part of a capital raise or a tax planning strategy. These changes raise difficult tax issues which are further complicated in light of contemplated tax law changes in the United States and elsewhere. Tax partners from Orrick's French, German, Italian, U.K., and U.S. offices will discuss these issues in a virtual roundtable format.
