Expertise & Consulting

Tax law means structuring. To achieve an economic and strategic development, enterprises need individual and precise answers to questions on tax and finance. This includes, besides the overarching complex solutions, individual questions as well, which might often arise in context with ongoing projects. Tax Law in its diversity constitutes a main instrument in this respect: the acquisition und the disposition of companies or shares of companies, restructuring, foundation of new companies, merger or joint venture require tax efficient structures. The transfers of estate and companies in connection with succession to the next generation or to foundations need a differentiated legal assessment and planning. Specific questions may occur in connection with crisis situations. Additionally, it is becoming more important to represent the company’s interest at financial authorities and in court.

Economy means dynamic. Operative processes need to be adjusted to the national and international realities. Therefore, quick action as well as long-term thinking is required.

As economy is made by individuals, individual requirements of, for example local and regional family companies have to be considered as well as international executive structures. Every concern of decision-makers, entrepreneurs, founders or heirs must be taken into account during the planning of legal structures.
