Bankruptcy Taxation

Jones Day's Bankruptcy Taxation team has in recent years provided tax advice to debtors in a wide variety of important bankruptcies and also has been instrumental in representing a number of lender and shareholder groups.

Important tax issues are often first litigated in bankruptcy court, and Jones Day has been successful in a number of those cases, including the Dow Corning decision on the deductibility of postpetition interest on prepetition debt, the Elder-Beerman decision on the taxability of tenant allowances, and the Federated decision on the deductibility of "break-up" fees.

Bankruptcy also has served in recent years as the forum for major distressed M&A transactions, and members of the Bankruptcy Taxation team have provided tax advice to buyers and sellers in connection with a number of recent transactions of this type.
