Legal advice at Maack & Company

The implementation of tax solutions often requires deep legal insight, especially when things get trickier and standard approaches would not work. Together with our affiliate Maack & Collegen Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH, we offer you answers to legal and tax-related questions from one source.

In our economic and tax-related considerations, we always take the legal framework conditions into account. Conversely, we always examine the tax effects of our legal design proposals. Virtually all of our lawyers are also qualified auditors, tax consultants, and/or tax law specialists. Thus, you can combine financially sensible solutions with what is legally correct.

That might get complicated?

Sounds good.

Special areas of Maack & Company

Design consulting

Our objective is not to manage your taxes but to reduce them to the necessary extent by means of creative solutions. Smart design consulting is our passion, especially for complex projects and companies. Benefit from a consulting quality that goes far beyond the standard measure. Our expertise in the field of tax law has been well documented by means of numerous lectures and publications in specialized magazines and is renowned among professionals.

On this basis, we regularly develop design models that give our clients effective economic leeway. If there are several design options, you can rest assured that we will provide you with a clear, substantiated solution proposal. Coach change, open new pathways!

Succession planning

There are no standards for succession planning. Each company is as unique as its history and is closely attached to the people who (will) lead it. The models that we develop integrate the past and the present to deliver future-proof solutions and ensure transitions with respect and entrepreneurial foresight.

Taking the needs of both the transferring party and those of the successor into consideration, we have developed and rolled out numerous intelligent and successful succession models both for our own clients and for the clients of other tax consultants. The models range from a transfer with usufruct elements to the establishment of special company forms (e.g. partnership limited by shares) to family or non-profit foundations in Germany and abroad.


Restructuring offers opportunities and new perspectives. However, it is important to make the right moves in order to ensure that the decisions made today remain sustainable in the future. We listen, understand, and implement projects for more than 40 companies a year. Thanks to our experience, we are able to provide important impulses in this area, too. Together with members of the tax administration, we hold numerous specialized lectures on reorganization and reorganization tax law to selected audiences, e.g. in the fields of designing company restructuring measures, tax precautions, contractual implementation, and enterprise valuation.

Mergers and acquisitions

Are you planning to sell a company? If so, you need somebody who will get immersed in your subject matter and who has a wealth of experience in organizing even the smallest details. Here too, we are your reliable partner—for international purchases, as well, of course. We offer you the entire spectrum from the contractual guidance of the transaction to all areas of due diligence. For our prudent, professional coaching of numerous successful company purchases, the trade press designated us as the top tax consultancy for M&A processes in 2017.

Coaching of tax audits

Good preparation for tax audits is vital to protect your capital and your nerves. We are familiar with both sides: Benefit from the many years of experience that Thomas Maack gained in a leading position in the field of tax audits at the tax administration. This consulting quality is also evident in our team. Our experts will be pleased to provide you with professional assistance for tax audits.

Financial court proceedings

We have the experience and the power to enforce your claims in court. Since our foundation, our lawyers and tax consultants have taken cases all the way to the Federal Fiscal Court. At the outset, we examine your chances for success, providing a realistic opinion. If a court case should start, you can rest assured that you will be represented in the best way possible.

Support for clients of other tax consultants

For many years, we have supported other tax consultants throughout Germany in the rollout of projects for their clients, e.g. in the fields of restructuring, succession planning, design, or difficult tax audits. In connection with tax audits, you will greatly benefit from the know-how of our founder and partner Thomas Maack, who spent almost 20 years with the Hamburg tax administration, mainly as a tax auditor.
