DLA Piper LLP (US)

Work Department



Dr Konrad Rohde has been advising for more than ten years on domestic and international tax law. His clients include German and foreign corporations and partnerships. His work includes tax structuring, providing advice on tax audits and tax litigation, as well as general advice in corporate tax. In tax structuring, he focuses on the investment of investors and structuring of initiators of tax optimized investments upon implementation, execution and defence of tax optimized concepts. This includes in-depth knowledge in investment taxation. On the tax audit side, Konrad focuses on negotiating with tax authorities and representing clients in ensuing tax litigation. His general corporate tax work includes restructuring, M&A transactions, management participations and financing issues. Konrad heads the German Tax group of DLA Piper.



Within: Tax

Clients recommend DLA Piper’s tax law team for its ‘swift and professional work and pragmatic approach’. Instructions are traditionally international in nature and frequently involve tax law assistance with transactions and restructurings but the team is also well versed in handling compliance matters. As a highlight for the former segment, Konrad Rohde, who resigned from his position as team head to take on the role as country managing partner, advised the private equity company Lone Star on the tax aspects involved in the acquisition of a majority stake in ISARIA Wohnbau. New team head Claus Jochimsen-von Gfug joined the practice from the accounting firm PwC in April 2016 and Björn Enders was made partner in May 2017.

  • Sentencing guidelines for corporate manslaughter

    In February 2010 the Sentencing Guidelines Council (the SGC) issued definitive guidelines to courts on imposing appropriate sentences for corporate manslaughter and health and safety offences causing death. The SGC states that fines imposed on companies found guilty of corporate manslaughter should not fall below £500,000, while fines in respect of health and safety offences that are a significant cause of death should be at least £100,000. Crucially, the SGC declined to provide for a fixed link between the imposed fine and the turnover or profitability of the offending company.
