We combine outstanding expertise in German and international tax law with specialist know-how in other areas of business law particularly relevant to our clients.

Our clients are often confronted with highly complex issues that are not limited to isolated topics. To solve them, we take an interdisciplinary approach. Roughly half of the partners and associates of Flick Gocke Schaumburg are lawyers, the other half being certified tax advisors and public auditors.
