As a lawyer and tax advisor you benefit from my knowledge "from the other side" as a tax collector
in all levels of a tax procedure, also in law regarding fiscal offences. Basically I provide advice
with reference to fiscal effects. Beside questions in domains of company law and other subjects
of private law (title of inheritance, family laws) I always pay regard to tax consequences.
I have been a tax collector from 1987 to 1999. Having completed 18 months comprehensive
training at the Bundesfinanzakademie (i.e. the federal university of the German tax administration)
belonged to, I operated for 6 months in a tax office as a supervisor of an assessment department and
after one more years training, I acted from October 1990 to the end of 1999 as a head of a tax audit
department. Until 1999 I run a big tax audit department in Munich.
Due to my experience both a tax collector and as a lawyer and tax advisor I have often been in charge
of structural questions, i.e. in connections with restructurings, corporate successions and successions
and beneficences. Of course a big part of my practice is to support tax audits or the defence in tax fraud,
also my practice focuses on tax litigation and on international tax law. Basically I present to my clients
alternative solutions which avoid any tax liability suits. Furthermore I supervise tax procedures as a second advisor.
The acceptance of a client from a colleague is guaranteed.
