Tax

Our tax lawyers focus exclusively on media, technology and intellectual property

Our tax lawyers provide comprehensive corporate tax advisory services on all aspects of transactional and strategic matters, including mergers and acquisitions, cross-border investment, joint ventures, partnerships, venture capital, reorganisations and restructures. We offer clients tailored solutions through the application of deep sector knowledge and technical tax expertise. We regularly advise entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes on tax efficiencies at every stage of the business life cycle – from start-up, investment through to exit – and on all aspects of their tax affairs from special projects through to tax compliance.

Wiggin’s tax team provides high quality stand-alone tax advice for various household names within our specialist sectors.

We also have significant experience in respect of the ever-evolving taxation of the digital economy, including both the digital service tax and VAT on e-commerce.

The team also advises on fund structures. We are experienced in providing specialist tax advice to media and tech funds in respect of their structures, financing and management incentives.
