This year too, the Bielefeld Chartered Accountant and Tax Consultant HLB Stückmann was honoured as one of the top tax offices by the FOCUS SPEZIAL magazine (Feb/March 2018 issue). This is the result of the survey conducted annually into this sector. The law office was acclaimed in four categories and is delighted with its top ranking positions in auditing, international tax consultancy, restructuring/transformation and M&A plus in administrative implementation.
Every year on behalf of Focus, the Hamburg-based Institut Statistica conducts a survey to compile a Germany-wide ranking of tax and corporate law offices which covers 19 work areas of auditing and tax consultancy and ten sectors. The selection is based on recommendations made by colleagues from the respective specialist area. An additional evaluation criteria includes the formal additional qualifications of the firm's members of staff.
“We are very proud that for the fifth time we have achieved a ranking as one of the best tax law offices in Germany” says Dietmar Engel, Tax Consultant and Managing Partner at HLB Stückmann. “This is an acknowledgement of our good work”. However, as the tax expert stresses, they do not want to rest on their laurels. “The professional field of auditing and tax consultancy is becoming increasingly complex so we will use this repeat award as the springboard for the continuous further development of our services in all our areas of activity. This is the only way we can achieve the best possible work results for our clients.”
