Tyler J. Hawkins is a tax associate in Ballard’s Minneapolis office.

Tyler’s practice focuses on domestic and international income tax advisory services. He represents a broad range of clients from startups and private equity funds to multinational and inbound corporations, advising on the structuring, implementation, and compliance considerations of various complex transactional matters—including mergers and acquisitions (with an emphasis on private equity buy- and sell-side representation), reorganizations, spinoffs and other divisive transactions, partnerships and joint ventures, financings, IRS audit defense, and cross-border restructurings.

In his practice, Tyler drafts tax opinions, memoranda, transaction decks and legal micro step plans, transaction compliance reporting matrices and disclosures, gain recognition agreements, and tax impact models. He also drafts and reviews legal documents, corporate governance articles, debt instrument documentation, valuations, and diligence reports.

Beyond his work on tax matters, Tyler provides pro bono advice on business formation, human rights, and immigration.
