Transactions often form the basis for complex questions that involve a number of legal areas: Tax and excise, company law, accounting, intellectual property rights, contracts, and stock exchange and securities legislation. In BDO we work together in cross service lines teams and if required in cross border teams to meet the needs of our clients.
