A further specialty of the litigation team of GLNS is advising on disputes about the professional liability of auditors and tax advisors. Such disputes are typically based on breaches of duties relating to advising on tax structuring, during the annual audit, or in critical financial situations (incorrect audit of restructuring reports).
In this are we mainly advise companies on the enforcement of claims for damages against their (former) tax advisors and auditors. The complexity of the matter requires an integrated know-how of civil law and civil procedure law combined with special knowledge in tax law. Our litigation practice works closely with the tax advisors of GLNS. Moreover, we regularly cooperate with an audit firm specialized in the forensic assessment and suited for the necessary preparatory work regarding the determination of the correctness of an audit and damages.
