JUVE "Corporate Law Firm" Guide & JUVE "Taxes" Guide

The JUVE "Corporate Law Firm" Guide is the most important directory of law firms in Germany. This renowned manual is researched and compiled by an independent editorial team and is intended to provide more transparency regarding the complex market of legal services. The best law firms are listed in the subject-specific rankings. LHP is one of the few law firms for criminal tax law which is mentioned every year in the JUVE Guide.

The first edition of the JUVE "Taxes" Guide was published in 2018 and, in future, it will be updated in April of every year. Various chapters address individual aspects of the tax market and introduce law firms with partners on various relevant subjects. 

JUVE 2019/2020 Guide in the field of "Criminal Tax Law"

"The Cologne-based division has established an excellent reputation for itself on the market as a result of its tax-law individual defence practice – last but not least because it also processes tax litigation proceedings and voluntary self-disclosures. (...) more and more companies have consulted LHP, as a result of which tax compliance advice has increased. Moreover, Heuel also works in the field of criminal tax law advice regarding crypto-currencies – a field which only few law firms have discovered for themselves so far. The addition and appointment of new partners demonstrates the continuing success and sustainability of the firm."

LHP again honoured in the JUVE "2019 Taxes" Guide

"The Cologne law firm is highly recognized in criminal tax law through individual defense. LHP profits its well-functioning network of tax consultancy firms (...)."
