We thrive on the challenge of providing tax solutions that ensure our clients pay only their fair share of tax so that they can achieve their commercial and personal objectives. We achieve this in three key ways.
First, the strength of the Osborne Clarke tax group lies in the individual technical expertise of each of our tax partners and the collective technical expertise of the group. Tax is constantly evolving and it is essential your advisers keep ahead of developments. We track changes in law and practice; take account of shifts in government thinking; and influence change (where possible) via our active membership of professional bodies such as the International Fiscal Association, the Chartered Institute of Taxation and the British Venture Capital Association.
The technical expertise of our tax partners is recognised by the Legal 500 (2011) and Chambers & Partners (2011) directories, which state that "high-calibre outfit takes a three-pronged approach to developing its tax practice, investing in property, international projects and corporate finance structuring. The members of the corporate tax team all spend time in Bristol, Reading and London, working as a seamless outfit to best service clients."
We also call on and coordinate the skills of a variety of experts from different legal and other professional disciplines to help us deliver solutions.
Second, the depth of our tax practice enables us to provide a comprehensive ‘lifetime’ service to the firm's corporate and personal clients. We offer a full range of services, which share two things in common - we provide pragmatic solutions to tax problems and we deliver those solutions using the rare ability of our lawyers to interpret and explain complex tax issues in plain English.
Third, Osborne Clarke’s international network means we can provide seamless national and international tax advice across a number of legal jurisdictions, enabling clients to minimise their tax liabilities and maximise the legal efficiency of any scheme. The tax team has a strong international focus, dealing with the affairs of multinational companies, entrepreneurs and high-net worth individuals, with interests inside and outside the UK.
