As lawyers, tax advisers and tax law specialist and combined with the fact that the majority of our law firm's lawyers and tax advisers are former tax officers, LHP - Attorneys offers very exclusive know-how in working with the fiscal authorities and, in particular, the tax offices and the tax investigation department.

A number of potential pitfalls have to be considered, in particular, in proceedings before the fiscal court and the Federal Fiscal Court. The same also applies to criminal tax proceedings. The latter, in particular, requires comprehensive and detailed knowledge of internal administrative proceedings, tax law and criminal law. And this is were "tax advisers only or "lawyers only" are sometimes limited in their options. However, as a result of our long-standing experience on both sides of the negotiation table, we are regularly able to achieve excellent results for our clients.
