GSK expands Luxembourg presence with a new tax partner

Opened at the beginning of March 2016, GSK Stockmann + Kollegen continues to expand its Luxembourg office. Mathilde Ostertag recently joined the Luxembourg team of Equity Partners Dr. Marcus Peter, Andreas Heinzmann and Dr. Philipp Mößner as Local Tax Partner.

Mathilde Ostertag was admitted as a lawyer to the Barreau de Luxembourg in 2008. Since then she has been working for two major international law firms with offices in Luxembourg in the fields of tax law and international tax structuring. Mathilde Ostertag advises real estate investment funds (Luxembourg structures), private equity funds, family offices and investment funds on all aspects of tax law in regard to corporate/M&A, structured financings including securitisations, and IP-transactions and is a specialist for international tax law focusing on inbound investments in the European Union.

Dr. Petra Eckl, speaker of GSK Stockmann + Kollegen’s Tax group, comments: “We are very happy that we convinced such an excellent tax law expert to join our team. With Mathilde Ostertag on board we are now able to revert directly to our Luxembourg tax expertise, be it regarding all aspects of asset management and the structuring of investment funds, in advising family offices, or on transactions in the private equity or venture capital sector. This is a major advantage driving our product specific and tax centered advisory approach.”

Speaking for the Luxembourg office, Dr. Marcus Peter states: “Mathilde Ostertag is the perfect candidate to complement the Luxembourg team, which is now able to fully advise on all tax matters in Luxembourg. She will strongly contribute to the continuing growth of the Luxembourg office, where we already have thirteen lawyers.”

The timely reinforcement of the Luxembourg office with a tax partner has created a lot of positive interest with the Broadlaw Group alliance partners. “In particular on cross-border projects, such as the structuring of funds, transactions or the launching of capital markets products the Luxembourg tax expertise perfectly completes the single source services our international Broadlaw Group clients expect,” adds Dr. Oliver Glück, Co-Managing Partner at GSK Stockmann + Kollegen. “Since the opening of our Luxembourg office at the beginning of March, specific client requests by our Broadlaw Group members have significantly increased. With Mathilde Ostertag joining the Luxembourg office we now have a dynamic and powerful team in place, able to fully meet the increasing demand for holistic cross-border advice and support in Luxembourg.

Together with tax partners Dr. Petra Eckl and Dr. Dirk Koch the GSK-Tax team now comprises seven tax law specialists located in Luxembourg, Frankfurt and Munich.
