Adviser liability

This department is concerned with consultation and representation in relation to liability prevention and defence against possible adviser liability claims. In some cases, our involvement takes place at an early stage of the tax procedure in order to proactively counteract the creation of tax liabilities. In addition, we represent solicitors by defending them against alleged tax consultant claims in extrajudicial and judicial proceedings at the civil courts. In this connection, we have been cooperating with market-leading liability insurers for many years in such matters. At the same time, we advise on liability prevention issues (choice of legal form, structuring of tax consultancy contracts, liability limitation agreements).
