Strengths

A client says: "The team analyzed exhaustively the different scenarios that could be presented, in relation to the proposed hypothesis. It stands out the knowledge that they have of the tax law and especially of the opinions and interpretations that the regulator realizes. They adapt to the commercial vision that our company has and are ready to solve the problems that arise."

Work highlights

The firm provided counsel to Algeciras Group on the joint-acquisition (together with AccorHotels) of a 100% of the real state and hotel management operation of the Atton Hotels in several jurisdictions. The advisory was focused on the review of the pre-sale restructuration process, followed by the restructuring of the companies received to achieve the separation of the real state and management business lines in an efficient manner.

Co-head of department Mario Silva is commended by clients for being a "recognised and good tax lawyer with a lot of experience; he is an authority on tax matters." He focuses his practice on corporate and personal taxation, tax planning and corporate restructuring for corporations and family offices.
