No matter whether you wish to be accompanied through a company transaction or whether you are looking for representation in fiscal court proceedings – ZENK specialist lawyers for tax law will also advise you comprehensively on your individual situation with regard to subsidy law and customs law.
In the area of taxation, we focus on restructuring and company acquisitions, the regulation of company succession, and the structuring of tax-optimised forms of investment. In addition, we represent our clients in fiscal court proceedings.

Tax law and criminal tax law

Companies come into contact with German or international tax law in almost all of their decisions. This is because the tax laws of today are so comprehensive. At the same time, ongoing changes and the increase in legal regulations complicate long-term planning.
The focus of our legal activities is on:
  • Restructuring of companies
  • Company acquisition
  • Arrangements for company succession
  • Design of funds and other tax-optimised forms of investment
  • Representation in proceedings before tax courts and appeals before tax authorities
  • Advice in the run-up to criminal investigations under tax law
  • Representation when dealing with penal and fine offices of the tax offices and public prosecutor’s office
In particular, we work closely with your tax advisor or your tax department when designing funds and other forms of investment. If necessary, we exchange ideas with specialists who have been with us for many years.

Customs and market regulation law

The taxation of goods through customs duties is a recurrent source of difficulties at international level. Companies that import or export should therefore always seek legal advice. Lack of knowledge and incorrect handling of customs and market regulations can have serious consequences.
As a law firm with a commercial focus, we provide you with personal legal support from highly specialised lawyers for customs law and market regulation law.
Our main areas of expertise are:
  • Community Transit procedures
  • Inward and outward processing
  • Preferential rights
  • Production law
  • Export refund legislation
  • Anti-dumping law
  • Foreign trade law
It goes without saying that we represent you in proceedings before tax courts, national tax authorities and the European Commission. In addition, we advise companies and their executives discreetly and effectively in all criminal and fine proceedings. We are also happy to take care of your case.
