HOUSTON, May 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Burleson LLP, a full-service corporate law firm with a focus on the oil and gas sector, will host a complimentary luncheon on May 21 as part of its ongoing Trends, Terms, and Lessons Learned series. The event, which will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Sullivan's Steakhouse, will cover typical tax issues affecting producers and the latest tax developments impacting companies in the oil and gas industry.
San Antonio Managing Partner Alex Perez and Ken Krasny, Of Counsel in the firm's Houston location, will lead the session. They will address a broad range of topics, including debt modifications, debt for equity swaps, modifications of mineral interests, and exchanges of debt or assets.
"With prices for oil dipping to $50 a barrel and natural gas in the neighborhood of $2 per MMbtu, energy companies in general – and producers in particular – are wise to consider tax strategies that can help cut costs," explained Perez. "This presentation will touch on some common methods for reducing tax burdens and optimizing fiscal performance in a lower-price environment."
Perez has practiced law for more than 15 years and is well versed in representing U.S. and non-U.S. businesses in connection with domestic and international matters involving corporate law, finance, tax, and mergers and acquisitions.
Krasny is a tax and corporate attorney who has a broad background in negotiating and drafting documents in a variety of commercial contexts. These include merger and acquisition agreements, vendor and supply contracts, employment contracts, intellectual property license and royalty agreements, farmout and farm-in agreements, and buy-sell agreements.
The firm's Trends, Terms, and Lessons Learned series is designed to encourage open discussion of significant issues impacting the energy industry and other sectors served by Burleson.
