The WTS M&A Tax Team led by Dr Patrick Satish and Simone Rupp coordinated the tax due diligence in Spain, Portugal and Morocco with participation from the WTS Global network and advised on the tax issues relating to the cross-border acquisition structure from Germany to Spain. The M&A Tax Team worked closely with WTS Director Florian Wimmer, who is responsible for the global tax management of the Rodenstock Group as part of a business partnering arrangement.
