Position

Scott S. Jones is a partner in Proskauer’s Tax Department and a member of the Private Funds Group.

Scott’s practice focuses on tax planning for private equity fund managers in connection with their fund-raising and internal organizational matters, as well as investment activities. In addition, he represents U.S. and non-U.S. investors in connection with their investments in venture capital funds, buyout funds, hedge funds and other investment partnerships. In this capacity, as well as in connection with advising private equity funds with respect to their investment activities, Scott regularly advises on international tax issues that arise with investments in the U.S. by non-U.S. investors (including non-U.S. investors subject to special U.S. tax treatment, such as governmental pension plans and tax-exempt organizations), as well as investments outside of the U.S. by U.S. persons.

He also has significant experience structuring tax-free and taxable mergers and acquisitions (including cross-border transactions), equity compensation arrangements and innovative financing techniques for investments in tax transparent entities such as partnerships, limited liability companies and Subchapter S corporations.
