Tax Tier 4

'Very experienced' tax law boutique ALTHUBER SPORNBERGER & PARTNER Rechtsanwälte was formed in March 2018 by former DLA Piper Weiss-Tessbach practice head Franz Althuber and Martin Spornberger, formerly head of tax litigation at PwC Austria. The firm focuses on tax litigation, tax criminal law and tax risk management and receives regular instructions from domestic and international corporate clients, private foundations, members of management boards and high-net-worth individuals.

Our firm: We are one of Austria’s leading law firms focusing on tax disputes, tax criminal  law and D&O liability. Our lawyers are renowned experts in their fields, authors of specialist publications and hold lectures and seminars at universities. A professional approach based on expertise and precision, tactical skill and utmost discretion distinguishes all our lawyers.

Our philosophy: Specialising in selected practice areas and focusing on our core competencies are the cornerstones of our firm’s philosophy and essential prerequisites for excellence and success. We offer clients legal services exclusively in those areas of law where we are recognised as being among the best by virtue of expertise and experience. In addition to providing advisory services of excellent quality, we are committed to creating maximum value for our clients in terms of the practical implementation of our advice, based on an attorney-client relationship governed by personal attention and fairness.

Our areas of work are:

  • Tax Disputes and tax audits
  • Tax criminal law
  • Tax risk management
  • Directors’ and officers’ liability
  • Risk advice for members of managing and supervisory boards

Our clients: Our clients include small, medium and large enterprises in Austria, as well as international company groups and their subsidiaries both local and overseas. We also advise private foundations, members of managing boards, high-net-worth individuals and charitable organisations.

We frequently collaborate with other advisors of our clients (auditors and tax advisors, financial and investment advisors) and with banks in Austria and abroad, supporting them in connection with tax disputes and the resolution of complex issues under tax law and corporate law.

Our network: The players in globalised markets are often faced with complex legal issues that require both detailed knowledge of all relevant national laws and an international perspective. Especially in tax-related proceedings and disputes, authorities from different countries often work together. Coordinated action on the part of the authorities calls for coordinated action and an internationally consistent approach on the part of the legal advisors as well. In international cases we therefore closely cooperate with a network of international colleagues in Europe, Asia and the USA.
