Wolters Kluwer introduces new online title that offers guidance on drafting tax provisions for private M&A and investment funds

Authored by an attorney expert, new title sheds light on understanding tax provisions in today's market deals.

Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S., today announced the launch of a new online title, Drafting Tax Provisions for Private M&A and Investment Funds, exclusively available on Cheetah™. Created for legal professionals, Cheetah™ is a groundbreaking workflow solution that enables faster and more accurate research, offers a sleek and responsive user interface, and delivers intelligent insights and expertise.

The new title provides practical guidance, and is the only source that catalogs provisions applicable to M&A and investment funds, provides examples of multiple drafting approaches, and offers various negotiation points. Author and attorney tax expert Ivan Mitev is of counsel to the firm of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP. Mr. Mitev’s practice focuses primarily on the domestic and international aspects of private equity and hedge fund taxation, and the formation, recapitalization, merger, sale, and liquidation of partnerships and LLCs.

"Tax provisions are a staple in many private merger, acquisition, and investment fund documents, however, there exists no single source that provides a comprehensive directory of provisions, as well as an in-depth analysis of the tax language," said Benjamin G. Snipes, Product Line Director of Tax at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S.. “This new title will be invaluable to corporate tax attorneys, accountants, and start up investment funds that need to understand how tax provisions are used in today's market deals."

Providing hands-on practical guidance for the most important tax transactions related to M&A and investment funds, the new title includes:

  • A complete catalogue of various provisions, examples of alternative drafting approaches, and in-depth explanations of tax language.
  • Benchmarks for tax documents and precedents related to the investment fund and private M&A industry.
  • The most pertinent documents that concern investment funds and the private M&A practitioner.
  • Clauses and other provisions compiled from multiple public sources such as EDGAR, FOIA requests, exhibits of court filings, and others.
