The expert tax lawyers at Watson Farley & Williams are trusted to deliver bespoke advice across the firm’s range of sectors to satisfy client needs, and ensure efficiency in transactions and proactively identifying opportunities.

Each group comprises a team of highly experienced and commercial tax lawyers who advise on all tax aspects of transactions.

A number of our lawyers have also worked in “Big 4” accounting firms, which adds an extra dimension to our advice. We regularly act on cross-border matters and we have a close network of leading tax advisers in other firms.

Our transaction-related services include:

  •  structuring transactions and investments;
  •  allocating tax risk;
  •  due diligence;
  • advice on modelling assumptions;
  • advice on management incentives; and
  • post-transaction support (including advice on restructuring).

Outside of transactions, we advise on group reorganisations, disputes and investigations, and general tax consultancy/advisory matters.

The firm’s tax lawyers operate across chosen sectors: energy & infrastructure, maritime, natural resources, real estate and transport.
