Tax law / criminal tax law

Special consultation for proceedings and criminal law – aid in special situations

We advise in all stages of tax law-related appeal procedures:

  • Objections against tax assessments
  • Petitions for stays of execution
  • Proceedings before the fiscal courts

Our interdisciplinary structure enables us to understand even complex case structures from a (tax) law standpoint, prepare them procedurally and deliver comprehensive support.

Appreciation for this approach extends beyond our direct clients. Our tax advisor colleagues also frequently bring us in as expert consultants for proceedings already in progress. Of course, we preserve and maintain collegial collaboration and client protection as part of our normal rigorous professional standards.

This methodology closely parallels our care for clients in the area of criminal tax law. Improved information and controlling capabilities of the fiscal authorities and stiffer penalties have awakened the need for competent consultation for many business taxpayers. As a consequence, penalty exemption through self-indictment has become one of the central issues in criminal business and tax law.

Our many years of experience in this area as well as our closely interlocking expert legal and tax knowledge enables us to provide optimal consultations. We offer our clients reliable assistance even if an investigation proceeding has already been initiated, whether it be during searches or within the context of the criminal tax law proceeding.
