How we can help

Structuring and taxation are our strengths. These enable us to anticipate tax pitfalls and integrate tax aspects at all stages of a transaction initiated by a private equity or real estate fund. This includes the possible legal and tax implications (and future exit proceeds) of such a transaction, for both the fund and its investors. We can also assist in the post-closing legal and tax compliance.

With an integrated approach that sets us apart in the market, we offer our clients a unique combination of legal, tax and regulatory advice.
