Chris Reuscher, a partner in Roetzel's Akron office and a member of the business services group, was quoted in an article in Entrepreneur titled, "In $11 Billion Deal, Burger King Scoops Up Tim Hortons and Heads to Canada." The article discusses the terms of the $11 billion deal, while Chris speaks to the "hot botton" issue of tax inversion.
The article states:
“Clearly, this is motivated by a more favorable tax climate in Canada, but the issue is larger than this deal,” says Christopher Reuscher, a partner with law firm Roetzel, who focuses his practice on business mergers and acquisitions. “I am sure the White House is very concerned and has already called the Treasury to get them moving towards a solution. I am also concerned that this is going to be a very politicalized issue, which, if the past is any indication, means this won't get done anytime soon.”
