Andrew Kreisberg's practice focuses on domestic and international tax law, with an emphasis on the formation and operation of investment funds and joint ventures.
Andrew has worked extensively with both domestic and international sponsors to establish equity and other investment funds. In these transactions, Andrew is often responsible for examining and coordinating advice on domestic US and non-US tax issues, and developing the most advantageous fund structures to minimize the tax burdens on investors.
Andrew's experience extends to stock and asset acquisitions, including tax-free reorganizations and restructurings. Many of these transactions are cross-border deals that required complex structuring to accommodate the business and tax considerations of the parties involved.
Clients rely on Andrew's shrewd advice regarding the tax issues particular to non-US banks, non-US pension plans, non-US endowments, as well as private equity, real estate and other investment funds, for their compliance and transactional concerns—in particular those related to the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).
Andrew regularly represents sovereign and sovereign-related entities in investments in private equity, real estate and other alternative investment entities. These clients include sovereign wealth funds in Asia and the Middle East, Asian and Middle Eastern central banks, European foundations and endowments, and trusts affiliated with wholly owned entities of non-US sovereigns.
