Legal advice from a different perspective

We are proud to act as tax law advisers for national and multinational financial institutions and intermediaries, large corporations, investment and pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, leading private equity and real estate players, as well as for high-net-worth individuals.

Our dedicated tax team develops a deep knowledge of our clients’ businesses in order to provide relevant advice, innovative structuring and a timely, responsive service. Our specialists collaborate with colleagues on banking, corporate, finance and collective investment issues, as well as personal compensation matters. Whilst independent, we regularly work alongside tax lawyers from some of the most respected firms in the world, who share our commitment to technical excellence.

Our partners and counsel contribute to the competiveness of the Luxembourg tax environment and the financial sector as active members of the most prominent professional associations, such as the Luxembourg Bankers Association (ABBL), the Luxembourg Investment Funds Association (ALFI), the Luxembourg Branch of the International Fiscal Association (IFA) and the Luxembourg Private Equity Association (LPEA). You will see our contributions in specialised tax publications and in our appearances at international conferences.

Our approach to tax law:

  • We have a significant track record in tax-enhanced national and cross-border transactions across practice areas.
  • We devise innovative but viable commercial tax structures and handle complex tax litigation.
  • We have substantial expertise in advising on tax-efficient structuring and settingup of acquisition and finance vehicles and in general investment platforms, both regulated and unregulated.
  • With our colleagues in investment funds, we advise on all domestic and international tax aspects of collective investment schemes, such as the taxation of investors and carried interest structuring.

Our tax team can help you across a wide range of practice areas, including carried interest structuring, collective investment schemes, debt and equity markets, employee incentives and benefits, estate planning, islamic finance, M&A and corporate reorganisations, private equity, real estate taxation, structured finance and securitisations, tax litigation, taxation of IP rights, transfer pricing and VAT.
