Tax Law

The ranking as law firm of the year 2020 for succession, asset and trust management by JUVE, the German publisher of legal information, would have been unthinkable without our outstanding knowhow of fiscal law. While focussing on your interests and wishes, it is our goal to support you individually and in a way that is fiscally most advantageous to secure and maintain your assets across generations. Thanks to our inhouse competences and the international network of RITTERSHAUS we are proud to be able to assist and advise you in matters of asset succession even across national borders.

Not only with regard to succession planning but also concerning company transactions such as, for example, the transfer of company shares or the planning of restructuring measures, one must, at all times, not lose sight of the fiscal consequences and optimisation options. Independently of any potential succession planning, RITTERSHAUS advises you and your company in public limited company law and private company law as well as in group, company conversion and corporation tax law. It is, in fact, due to our coordinated communication at the internal interface between tax and corporation law that we are able to offer our clients comprehensive concepts and solutions.

On account of the complexity of tax law and the even greater complexity of your potential concerns it is impossible to describe, at this point, all our experiences, competences and fields of activity. For this reason, we wish to encourage you to establish contact with and present your concerns and questions personally to any of our advisers.
