Rob Burke is a partner in Proskauer's Tax Department and Real Estate group. Rob devotes a majority of his practice to issues involving the taxation of partnerships, limited liability companies, S corporations, REITs and other entities treated as "pass-through" entities for federal income tax purposes. Within this area, he is a well-recognized authority in the structuring and formation of investment funds (including venture capital, real estate and hedge funds) and complex commercial joint ventures and similar arrangements.
The balance of Rob’s practice focuses on corporate mergers and acquisitions, restructurings and financings. The core of this portion of his practice involves structuring and negotiating both taxable and tax-free corporate acquisitions. He also has significant experience with corporate "spin-offs" and public offerings of complex financial instruments.
