Market-leading expertise

Our Tax practice is by far one of the largest among European law firms. Although the practice is comparable to that of any of the Big Four accounting firms in terms of numbers, you will find that our approach is very different. We focus on building strong relationships with our clients, providing personal service and acting as your trusted adviser.

Pragmatic, tailored advice

We stand out from other law firms with our flat organisational structure, entrepreneurial mindset and pragmatic approach. We work in small teams and our partners provide plenty of hands on support. We also tailor our services to your precise needs, whether that’s a straightforward e-mail response or more considered advice.

How we can help

Our in-depth knowledge, expertise and practical experience cover all of the various tax and legal areas relevant for your company. We can help with the whole range of tax and legal issues, from advice on mergers and acquisitions to transfer pricing, EU law and dealing with the tax authorities. Our highly experienced team also takes a broad view and looks beyond the specifics of your particular request to identify the best way of helping your business.
