Basically, we are of the opinion that disputes with the tax authorities in court should be avoided because costs accrue as a result of protracted proceedings and uncertainties are often not eliminated for years.

It is for this reason that we attempt to come to a satisfactory solution for our clients through the professional confrontation within the framework of the assessment and – if necessary – within the framework of extra-judicial appeals. If this is not possible, we will also litigate the dispute up to the German Federal Tax Court, the German Federal Constitutional Court or European instances before we would advise our clients to accept a compromise which is disadvantageous to them.

The readiness to exhaust all legal possibilities as needed as well as the many years of experience of our specialist lawyers for tax law increase, at the same time, the prospects of achieving a positive negotiation result.
