Practice Areas

The multifarious transactions in commercial life have often consequences relating to tax law that should be considered before rather than after the transaction.
We provide assistance in tax aspects relating to purchase and sale of businesses, tax aspects of M&A transactions, choice of structure in connection with transformation, tax-exempt reorganizations such as mergers and demergers, domestic and international tax issues, including questions relating to enterprises moving from or to Norway, transfer pricing, general corporate and personal taxation, including incentive schemes for employees, inheritance tax and wealth tax.
We also provide assistance in tax disputes. This includes qualified assistance in the handling of tax audits, complaints and, if necessary representation in court.
