VAT and indirect tax

Within: VAT and indirect tax

Baker McKenzie's impressive standalone VAT practice is led by Mark Delaney and leverages the firm's global reach to handle multi-jurisdictional VAT projects. Major contentious investigations and disputes are a core area of expertise, while on the non-contentious end, it is often called upon to advise on the design and implementation of VAT-efficient tax structures. Mark Agnew brings 'a unique perspective and commercial mindset' to problems, for which he provides 'practical solutions'. Promoted to partner in June 2018, tax litigator David Jamieson specialises in VAT and indirect tax disputes with the UK authorities. He has appeared as lead advocate at both the First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal, as well as the supreme court. The group is representing Marriott at the Upper Tribunal in a groundbreaking case regarding the VAT consequences of customer loyalty programs, having acted for the client on the same matter in the French courts. Ross Denton and Jennifer Revis (who was promoted to partner in July 2017) are key contentious practitioners, both with expertise in indirect tax matters.

London: Dispute resolution

Tax litigation and investigations

Within: Tax litigation and investigations

Baker McKenzie's multi-disciplinary team is noted for its depth of expertise, with specialist expertise covering the contentious aspects of corporate and indirect tax and transfer pricing. Drawing on the firm's global presence, it is particularly well placed to handle cross-border matters and disputes with multiple tax authorities, showcased by its involvement in major transfer pricing litigation involving Europe and the US, led on by Richard Fletcher and Kate Alexander. The group is jointly-led by Nigel Dolman and David Jamieson (who was made a partner in July 2018). Mark Delaney is singled out for work on global indirect tax projects and ability to coordinate with regulatory authorities. In a recent highlight, newly minted partner Jessica Eden acted for UK Power networks in a successful case before the First-Tier Tax Tribunal, defending claims for consortium relief made by a number of subsidiaries in the UKPN group.

  • The New Turkish Code of Obligations: Important Changes for Leases of Residential & Business Premises

    For decades, the primary Turkish laws governing leases of residential and business premises have been the Law on Leasing Real Property dated May 27, 1955 (the ‚ÄúLease Law‚ÄĚ) and the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 818 dated April 22, 1926 (the ‚ÄúObligations Code‚ÄĚ). Both of these laws, however, will be repealed and replaced with the new Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098 dated January 11, 2011 (the ‚ÄúNew Obligations Code‚ÄĚ), which will enter into force on July 7, 2012.
