Our Tax group assists Norwegian and non-Norwegian clients with tax advice and tax litigation. We provide legal advice in relation to tax, with a special focus on companies and high-net-worth individuals, as well as petroleum taxation.
We have an extensive portfolio and experience from tax litigation before all judicial bodies. In addition, the team pleads cases before the Supreme Court on a regular basis.
Our tax and VAT experts are committed to evolving strong long-term client relations with medium-sized and large clients. We assist businesses within a wide range of industries, as well as high-net-worth individuals. For many of these clients we handle all tax and VAT matters, including coordination of advice from tax lawyers in other jurisdictions.
Another key part of the team's work is input into projects handled by other departments, including, but not limited to, transaction tax advice in relation to securities and property transactions. We are also extensively involved in evaluations relating to, and the implementation of, the restructuring of both company groups and property portfolios, including requests for binding advance tax rulings from the tax authorities.
We have had a major tax litigation practice for several decades, and our lawyers have in recent years pleaded several high-profile cases before the Supreme Court. These cases have concerned, inter alia, circumvention, transfer pricing and the relationship between owners and companies.
We are deeply committed to providing specific and practical advice that adds value for our clients, and offer services as well as products designed to handle specific tax risks. Our lawyers have formal and practical accounting and finance qualifications, and are therefore relevant discussion partners for clients and other advisors with regard to commercial and financial matters.
