Sol Warhaftig, a partner in the Tax Department, counsels a broad range of clients on general tax and business issues. He has represented numerous clients in the manufacturing and distribution industries, the media and communication fields, the real estate industry and private investing.

Sol devotes a substantial part of his time to the domestic and international tax aspects of the structuring of corporate and noncorporate merger and acquisition transactions and the restructuring of debt. Sol – coordinating with the client’s management, investment bankers, other counsel and accountants – develops structures that will provide the optimum tax results to all parties, consistent with the efficient accomplishment of the transaction.

In addition, Sol regularly is involved in counseling companies with regard to the structuring of their ongoing operations, with a view to the minimization of their federal, state and local, and foreign tax liabilities. He also advises them with regard to tax audits and represents them in the litigation of federal, state and local tax disputes at the administrative level and before the courts. In numerous instances, Sol has been successful in settling multiple-year controversies involving substantial proposed tax deficiencies on a very favorable basis.
