With the continuing globalization of our economy, as well as the resulting increase in cross-border transactions and the complexity of domestic and international laws and regulations, multinational companies increasingly recognize the importance of proactively managing transfer pricing to limit related tax risks and take advantage of planning opportunities. Get it right and the benefits can be substantial; get it wrong and the consequences can be devastating.
Our transfer pricing team is a global operation with professionals—including lawyers, economists and certified tax advisors—who have experience in some of the most sophisticated areas of international tax and transfer pricing. Members of our Transfer Pricing team are located throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific. We are well positioned to help companies address their transfer pricing challenges and opportunities, both locally and globally.
Our global approach to project management enables you to work with one transfer pricing advisor worldwide, giving you the following benefits:
- Consistent advice in developing and implementing a practical global transfer pricing policy, as well as supporting and defending the policy in any jurisdiction
- Reduction in time needed to learn about your business, gather pertinent information, draft intercompany agreements and produce reports
- A global project management methodology that enables one project partner to manage communication, deliverables and invoicing on a completely integrated basis
The Transfer Pricing team of DLA Piper has also direct access to our global network of business lawyers, including corporate lawyers, intellectual property lawyers and litigators who are ready to add their perspective when required. In many countries, the confidentiality provided by attorney-client privilege is an additional advantage of working with us.
