Tax Law

Tax Law

Our recipe for success in increasingly complex markets: experience, industry know-how and creativity.

The optimization of the tax rate is an important profit factor for companies and private individuals. We are there to support you with our many years of experience both in day-to-day business and in special business activities such as M&A transactions and restructuring.

We represent our German and international clients in disputes with the tax authorities during tax audits, in the run-up to judicial disputes and before the tax courts.

Our range of advice includes:

  • Acquisition structures and financing
  • Restructuring
  • Cash pools
  • Holding structures
  • International tax law
  • Transfer pricing concepts (drafting and defense)
  • Tax proceedings including mutual agreement procedures and arbitration proceedings
  • Succession planning
  • Real estate transfer tax
  • Turnover tax

For the 17th edition of the ICLG - Corporate Tax 2021, our partners Marc Krischer and Dr. Gunnar Knorr wrote the chapter on German tax law. Read it here.
