For major corporations, growing businesses and individuals, tax is an area which impacts on virtually all business or asset management decisions to be made. Tax constitutes a crucial element in the commercial life of all businesses and often determines the structure of more complex transactions, notably M&A, restructurings, asset or project based financing, and of large scale investment projects, such as oil & gas exploration and production, LNG, renewable energy, telecommunications, transports and infrastructure projects, extractive industries, utilities.
