JUVE also emphasised the team’s extremely practical approach to advising its clients.
Furthermore, JUVE stresses that:
“Allen & Overy’s German tax team may be small in relation to the market, yet it offers versatile expertise, providing structuring advice, tax advice on M&A transactions, as well as advising in the field of pre-eminent capital market transactions and products, such as the first ever structuring of an ‘Islamic Bond’ in Europe.”
