5 October 2010 - Bär & Karrer Strengthens its Tax Department

October 2010

The Swiss law firm Bär & Karrer strengthens its tax department by recruiting three (highly) qualified tax specialists. 

The three tax experts Prof. Dr. Robert Waldburger, Dr. Raoul Stocker and Daniel Bader have gained extensive and long-standing experience working for govern-mental bodies and reputable consulting firms.

Robert Waldburger is an economist and lawyer, a Professor at the University of St. Gallen and Director of the Institute of Public Finance and Fiscal Law. Further-more, Robert Waldburger served as a delegate for International Tax Treaties and as Vice Director and Head of the Department of International Affairs of the Swiss Federal Tax Administration from 1998 to 2007. In this function, he represented Switzerland in international bodies such as the OECD and the UN. Since retiring from this office, Robert Waldburger has been working at the University of St. Gallen and advising corporations and individuals on national and international tax law.

Dr. Raoul Stocker, an economist and lawyer, was a Partner with the Tax Depart-ment of Ernst & Young where he occupied the position of Head of the Swiss Transfer Pricing Department. From 2003 until 2008, Raoul Stocker served as the Head of the Office of Transfer Pricing of the Department of International Affairs of 

the Swiss Federal Tax Administration. In this function, he represented Switzer-land in the Working Party No. 6 of the OECD (Taxation of Multinational Enter-prises). Dr. Raoul Stocker is a Vice Director of the Institute of Public Finance and Fiscal Law and lecturer for tax law and transfer pricing at the University of St. Gallen.

The economist Daniel Bader was a Senior Associate at Homburger AG where he was a member of the practice teams Tax and Private Clients. Currently, he ad-vises corporations and individuals in national and international tax law. Daniel Bader is a member of the board of the Swiss branch of the International Fiscal Association and is responsible for the development of the Young IFA Networks.

The three joining members will considerably strengthen the existing tax depart-ment of Bär & Karrer. Their appointment highlights the importance Bär & Karrer attaches to the Tax Department. The Tax Department advises Swiss and interna-tional corporations and individuals on tax planning and transaction structuring as well as tax compliance and represents clients before tax authorities and courts.
