Tax

The challenges

Taxation is becoming an increasingly complex issue in all countries given the globalisation of business. Taxation is now a key factor in the decision-making process and companies must have a national and international taxation strategy covering both direct and indirect taxes. The same trends are affecting companies and individuals.  

Our practice areas

  • General taxation of private and state-owned companies, including handling tax disputes
  • Patrimonial taxation
  • Transaction-related taxation
  • Taxation in the financial sector Real estate taxation
  • Transfer pricing
  • VAT
  • Local taxes
  • Non-salary benefits (stock options, incentive schemes, etc.).  

Our approach

  • Co-operation between lawyers specialising in each area of taxation and in other areas of law.
  • Collective expertise acquired through daily experience acquired in the most complex taxation issues.
  • Risk management: our know-how and expertise enables us to provide clients with highly reliable legal advice on their strategic and tactical choices.
  • Reputed support provided to companies in their dealings with the tax authorities and in pre-litigation and litigation proceedings.
