LAWFUEL – Press Release Service – Linklaters has been awarded four key European tax awards by International Tax Review, at its European Awards ceremony, held on Wednesday 24 May, at Claridge’s Hotel, London. The awards recognise tax work that the firm has undertaken over the past 12 months in the M&A, finance and contentious markets.
At the event Linklaters was named:
European Tax Litigation Firm of the Year (for the second year running)
European Tax Firm of the Year
French Tax Firm of the Year
German Tax Firm of the Year
Linklaters’ tax practice has been involved in a number of complex M&A and equities deals, as well as contentious work throughout the past year, including a number of major cross-border transactions, such as RBS’s acquisition of a stake in Bank of China, Old Mutual’s bid for Sweden’s Skandia and Deutsche Post’s bid for Exel.
Guy Brannan, global head of tax at Linklaters, commented:
“It is a great achievement to have won all four of these awards, clearly demonstrating our substantial expertise in international tax and tax litigation. The past 12 months have been noticeably busier across our practice, reflecting the increase of M&A activity in the market place and the higher volume of tax legislation.
“We are continually reviewing ways of providing clients with technical excellence and commercial solutions to their problems. Our tax-based finance practice has built up strong credentials in product development and the execution of transactions, positioning us as the clear leader in this market.”
