Comprehensive advice – from a single source

Secure your earnings with us

The internationalisation of tax law is progressing further due to measures implemented by the OECD and the EU. Political decisions are continually causing legal changes at the national level. Tax law is undergoing constant transformation.

We keep up to date in this complex field and will advise you in your tax matters at the highest level.   

Comprehensive advice – from a single source

As lawyers, tax advisors and auditors with GÖRG and BWLS, our integrated tax advice and auditing company, we can offer you a comprehensive advisory approach for your tax law concerns from a single source.

Trust we have earned – for your assets

Our expertise in the field of taxation has earned the trust of renowned national and international companies in various industries and of varying sizes, as well as private equity investors, affluent private individuals and non-profit organisations. We offer advice regarding real estate and business transactions to mid-sized companies, such as family-run companies and their shareholders, as well as institutional and private investors, but also for management in restructuring cases, business transactions or models for the equity participation of executives.

One specialisation of our practice is the fiscally optimised arrangement of company transactions and structuring measures regarding corporate law, as well as tax advice for the restructuring of distressed companies, either during reorganisation or within the context of insolvency. Of course, we also represent our clients in disputes with the tax authorities: including legal representation before the fiscal courts.
