William Pauls provides innovative solutions to a broad array of complex federal tax issues faced by insurers, reinsurers, and other multinational corporate clients. With more than a decade of transactional planning experience, William regularly advises clients with respect to structuring and implementing corporate reorganizations, stock and asset acquisitions and dispositions, cross-border transactions, spin-offs and other corporate separations, internal restructurings, reinsurance transactions, and captive insurance company arrangements. William also offers clients critical analysis concerning the application of the consolidated return regulations and the resolution of multifaceted international tax issues, including the application of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), the dual consolidated loss rules, and the insurance provisions of Subpart F. Before joining Sutherland, William served as a law clerk for the Honorable Mary Ann Cohen of the United States Tax Court. William leverages this experience while representing clients before the Internal Revenue Service and in federal courts. In addition to handling federal tax controversies, William's practice before the Internal Revenue Service includes obtaining letter rulings that address consolidated return issues, corporate transactional matters, and international tax questions.
