Tax advisory, structuring and dispute cases are the pillars of bpv Hügel‘s tax department, which ‘goes the extra mile’. The group includes a number of dual-qualified tax lawyers and tax advisors who are well placed to consider all angles of tax matters. Gerald Schachner specialises in international and corporate tax law and is able to combine this with his M&A expertise.
