WTS expands its corporate tax and transaction consulting services with Dr Oliver Trautmann

Munich/Frankfurt am Main, 01/06/2016 – WTS gains Dr Oliver Trautmann as a new partner. The 49-year-old auditor and qualified tax advisor switched to the Frankfurt office on 1 June 2016. His consulting work focuses on the areas of corporate tax law, M&A and restructuring, as well as tax proceedings.

Dr Oliver Trautmann arrived from leading European law firm Noerr, where he had worked as a partner since 2007, advising primarily listed companies with regard to complex restructurings and tax authority proceedings. His work also focused on advising private equity firms and strategic investors with regard to company acquisitions and real estate transactions. Between 1995 and 2007, Dr Trautmann worked for a Big Four company and another international law firm.

At WTS, Dr Trautmann will strengthen the Frankfurt corporate tax practice and promote the expansion of transaction consulting. “WTS challenges the existing structures of tax consulting. Experienced consultants work closely with experts and practitioners from the industry and the tax authorities. This WTS setup, unique in the market, excites me and is ideal for clients in corporate tax departments. It is also crucial to have that extra touch in today’s transaction environment,” said Dr Trautmann.

The office in Frankfurt gives a great reflection of the multidisciplinary approach that WTS takes in consulting. From corporate tax to asset management/investment tax law and transfer pricing, it covers a broad consulting portfolio. “At WTS, we place a great deal of importance in providing our clients with an extensive services portfolio. I am therefore particularly delighted that with Dr Trautmann, we are able to add another excellent reinforcement with a very wide range of consulting services to our team. We will reap, particularly, great benefits from his experience in monitoring transactions,” said Fritz Esterer, WTS Chief Executive Officer.
