Tax

Across the Benelux, our full-service tax groups provide pragmatic and effective advice on some of the most challenging, high-profile cases.

On the menu to the right you will find a list of the tax specialisms we provide our clients. Within these areas we advise on many domestic and international matters such as mergers and acquisitions, private equity, finance structures, capital markets, securitisations, EU law and tax treaties, public private partnerships, project finance, restructurings and real estate.

We have a strong litigation team, handling all types of cases from administrative appeals to contentious tax procedures before the lower and appellate courts, Belgium’s Supreme Court (Hof van Cassatie/Cour de cassation) and the Netherlands Supreme Court (Hoge Raad), and for Belgium, the Constitutional Court.

An essential part of our approach is to collaborate with colleagues from other practice areas to provide coordinated tax advice. When combined with the wealth of international experience present in every office, we provide a truly integrated global tax capability.
