Your trusted tax advisors

With strategic advice, our global team helps you achieve your business goals that are in line with complex tax rules. Our lawyers and economists sit side-by-side with clients throughout the lifecycle from planning to tax disputes. Extensive experience means we’re your single source of actionable advice and creative solutions: a knowledge base where tax meets commerce. 

Multinational businesses encounter cross-border tax, legal and operational issues. They’re experiencing complex international tax policymaking and more coordination between tax authorities. These challenges require both an international approach and a thorough knowledge of local markets.

With reforms that are continually under way, senior tax decision-makers face endless challenges. These range from anti-tax avoidance measures to political and tax technical issues arising from digitalization, and from taxation of supply chains to managing tax certainty, audit and controversy.

“They provide outstanding analytical advice for very complex cases while keeping in mind the commercial realities and administrative aspects of their solutions," and "their international network is remarkable as they really deliver seamless products bridging various jurisdictions.”

Our team of 440+ lawyers and economists monitor the legal and tax positions in the jurisdictions where you do business. We’re joined by lawyers from Finance, Corporate, Real Estate, Government Affairs, Intellectual Property, and Employment and Employee Compensation for advice in those areas.

Your expertise matters

Globally, tax authorities have intensified their tax audits. There is a growing trend towards forensic, whole value-chain focused, "show-not-tell" audits and an increasing exchange of information driven by programmes such as the OECD’s International Compliance Assurance Programme.

We'd like to invite you to participate in a short survey to understand how your organisation is approaching the challenges posed by this backdrop. Results will be published anonymously.

As a participant, we will send you access to a report containing aggregated results, offering a comparative analysis to inform your organization's approach to future tax audits and controversies.
