Representation of a corporate client in connection with the $730 million acquisition of a foreign corporation. The acquisition was funded in part with buyer stock, and in part with a mix of cash and convertible stock rights. The transaction was structured as a Section 351 exchange coupled with a tax-free reorganization of the buyer corporation. We negotiated and prepared all tax-related transactional documents (including offering memoranda) and issued tax opinions in support of the acquisition.
