V&E’s Tax lawyers handle some of the most complex and challenging transactions for U.S. and non-U.S. businesses raising equity and debt capital, buying, selling or reorganizing businesses, and entering into joint ventures. Our diverse client base features many Global 1000 companies, as well as major private equity funds.
We maintain a dominant position with respect to the formation and operation of publicly traded limited partnerships (MLPs) or limited liability companies, also known as “master limited partnerships.” Our lawyers have represented either issuers or underwriters in more than 80% of all natural resource and real estate MLP initial public offerings.

We represent many private equity funds in fund formation and their investment activities, such as leveraged buyouts, mergers and acquisitions.
