Our Tax Department is significantly the largest tax practice group amongst Irish law firms. In contrast to the tax departments of other Irish law firms, we operate primarily as a “front-end” service. Significantly more than half of our work is on transactions or advisory matters where our tax professionals have the sole or lead role. We also advise on the taxation aspects of transactions as part of a multi-disciplinary team with lawyers from other groups within the firm. We often act as special tax counsel in transactions where clients require specialised tax advice and are not comfortable using the tax department of their existing legal advisers.  We do not provide tax compliance services.
