Private Equity’s Inversion Excursion: Pepper Hamilton Talks Tax with The Deal

In a recent interview with The Deal’s Jon Marino, Pepper Hamilton LLP’s Joan Arnold, a partner who heads the firm’s tax group, says Pfizer’s play for AstraZeneca isn’t the only inversion deal being sought.

There are no shortages of U.S. companies looking to buy a foreign asset and re-incorporate itself overseas to save on American tax bills. There are private equity firms, as well, that may consider making smaller moves to save a bundle on tax obligations as well.

Elsewhere, in other sectors, investors in InterContinental Hotels Group want that company to sell itself to a U.S. buyer, in another potential inversion deal.
