We established Andersen Tax & Legal in Germany to offer integrated tax and legal services heeding the values which are associated with the Andersen name . Andersen Tax & Legal is the German member firm of Andersen Global®, an international association of member-firms comprised of tax and legal professionals worldwide. We have a presence in more than 107 locations worldwide through the member firms and collaborating firms of Andersen Global.

Andersen Tax & Legal originates from a management buy-out of the private client tax services of a world-wide operating bank. We are recognized experts in our areas of practice and render pragmatic and rock-solid advice to our clients. We know the markets in which our clients operate and tailor our advice to our clients’ needs in a competitive market place. The strong coordination with the other member firms of Andersen Global makes us the ideal partner of our clients for cross-border issues. We render our services in the most efficient way always staying close to our clients and using advanced technology. Our clients always know what we do and we know what our clients aim to achieve.

 

Our values

We adhere to the values associated with the Andersen name. Our services are of premier quality ensuring the success of our clients. We hire the best and brightest professionals and offer them a career perspective in a challenging and stimulating environment with all the advantages of an integrated international organization. We are aware of our responsibility for our professionals and their development in the organization offering them to develop their skills in a truly international environment. We emphasize client satisfaction. Our services shall be transparent to our clients and we want to be partners to their business: our clients know what we do, and we understand our clients’ actions.

We are a global organization and independent. Andersen Tax & Legal does not offer audit services which makes us the unique partner of our clients with the expertise of a global and integrated organization combined with not being subject to conflicts of interest resulting from statutory audits.

 

Our people

Our professionals are best in class. Beyond their local education they share the same values in all locations where Andersen Global has a presence  allowing our clients to receive seamless service.

We follow a strategy to grow in the interest of offering best quality service to our clients. This includes hiring laterals and integrating teams and entire firms who share our values and commitment to excellence. Transactions of this nature are not of a pure local nature, but are coordinated within Andersen Global to ensure that from day one all laterals, teams and firms work on the international platform that Andersen Tax & Legal makes available.

 

Our expertise

Our business is to advise our clients in their business to be successful. Apart from very few other firms in Germany we are offering truly integrated tax and legal services. We are aware of how closely legal and tax advice are connected for what our clients want to achieve – and we deliver.

Our base experience relates to all aspects of corporate and individual tax and legal issues. We are experts in corporate tax and law as well as tax and legal issues regarding investments and divestitures. We advise on commercial and corporate disputes conducted in court or by arbitration. We support our clients in all aspects regarding the financing and regulatory issues relating to such transactions. Another area of our advice are tax and legal aspects relating to the structure of our clients’ investments, i.e. what fund structure is best to realize their goals. Often this involves tax and legal issues regarding the regulatory framework in which our clients operate.

As a member of Andersen Global, we are building a firm which is a full-service trusted advisor to our clients in all areas in which they operate.

More details of our expertise underpinned by client references can be found in the CVs of our attorneys and tax advisers.

 

Our clients

We are proud to count among our clients dynamic and successful investors and their portfolio companies with a value-oriented growth strategy. Our main clients are investors and corporates. We distinguish between relevant interests and clear them in advance with our clients. Given our experience with advising investors we also assist financial institutions (in particular banks and insurance companies) with regard to their investment structure and regulatory issues.
