JUVE, an authoritative publication covering the German legal sector, has named Latham & Watkins Tax Law Firm of the Year.
In honoring Latham with this prestigious accolade, JUVE described the firm as being "a player in the top league of tax law firms."
"Its strong presence in challenging mandates related to restructuring is impressive. The firm is also brilliant in advising on complex tax issues in private equity transactions," according to JUVE. The team is "cooperating closer than ever, streamlining its energies, making the most of the specialized knowledge of each of the partners,” added JUVE.
In addition, Latham was recognized for its leadership and strength in areas such as real estate transfer tax. "The increasing demand from clients involved in disputes with the financial authorities is skillfully covered by the firm," said JUVE.
