Robert S. Chase II

Tax Group Practice Group Leader

Robb Chase helps multinational companies with significant operations in the United States plan their transactions—acquisitions, dispositions, joint ventures, restructurings and finance company arrangements—to achieve desired business objectives in the most tax-efficient manner. He routinely assists clients in navigating the rapidly changing maze of international tax rules and regulations that apply to multinational businesses, and provides advice on the implications of US tax reform and the global response to the evolving international tax system, including addressing the impact of laws that implement initiatives of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and other multinational organizations.

With more than 20 years of experience, Robb counsels corporations in all aspects of structuring, negotiating, documenting and reporting cross-border transactions and he has represented taxpayers in complex tax audit and litigation matters.

Robb regularly advises clients on tax issues relating to domestic and foreign public and private debt offerings, synthetic and hybrid instruments, foreign currency transactions, swaps and derivatives, hedging transactions and other complex financial products and transactions. Robb works with clients across all industries, including manufacturing, retail, e-commerce, technology, communications and professional services.
