Find Lawyers in Düsseldorf, Germany for Tax Law
Practice Area Overview
Tax lawyers deal with all kinds of tax-related matters, mainly with transactions and other legal issues from a tax law perspective, e.g. mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructurings, or fiscal disputes with the tax authorities in front of the fiscal courts. As the German tax system has become increasingly complex due to a steady growth in practical tax structuring, triggering frequent legislative amendments on a national level, many tax lawyers have over the years specialized in certain tax areas or industry sectors. This specialization normally pays off for the tax lawyer and for the client, as tax law is a rather error-prone area of the law where even minor details or adjustments to a structure can have a significant financial effect. At the same time it is important for a good tax lawyer to develop and maintain thorough basic knowledge in the various areas of national and international tax law to ensure that possible reciprocal tax effects that any given advice might have on the client have been considered.
