Department Information

Overview

Milbank’s tax advice encompasses the entire range of national and international tax law. In addition to tax advice in connection with M&A and private equity transactions, our German tax team counsels corporate groups as well as individuals on non-transaction related matters. As such, it advises on tax structuring (particularly related to business reorganizations and restructurings), tax audits, and contentious litigation proceedings.

The advice goes beyond a mere analysis of the underlying legal technicalities. Rather, our team provides goal- oriented and hands-on support, on which clients can fully rely upon throughout complex decision-making processes, and offers practical , workable solutions. To this end, our lawyers work closely with the finance and corporate groups to ensure that all relevant issues are addressed from the outset.
