Pardis Zomorodi advises on transactional tax issues in notable deals, many of which have impact on the California economy, including: mergers, acquisitions and spin-off transactions; taxation of corporations, partnerships and real estate investment trusts (REITs); formation of private equity funds and real estate funds; and securities offerings and financing transactions. Zomorodi also serves as the deputy office managing partner of Latham’s Century City Office.

A highlight of her work on recent high-profile transactions is the representation of Entercom Communications in its $4 billion merger with CBS Radio. The deal, which closed in November 2017, created the second-largest radio company in the US and involved the spin-off of CBS Radio by CBS and its acquisition by Entercom Communications in a “reverse Morris Trust” transaction.
