Baker Tilly Roelfs, formerly RölfsPartner, has expanded its Berlin office with the addition of Dr Peter H Eggers. Dr Eggers, a lawyer, tax consultant and auditor, is joining Baker Tilly Roelfs from RBS RoeverBroennerSusat in the role of partner. The main focus of his work will be national and international tax structuring, declaration advice, transaction consultancy and company succession.
As Wolfgang Richter, partner responsible for the legal and taxes division of Baker Tilly Roelfs, explains: "I am delighted that we have succeeded in recruiting such an experienced and recognised expert as we seek to continue to expand our office in the capital. Additionally, some of the key players in Dr Eggers’ team from RBS RoeverBroennerSusat in Berlin and Frankfurt will also be joining Baker Tilly Roelfs. This enables us to establish a solid ‘financial services consulting axis’ between Frankfurt and Berlin. As a result, the way ahead is clear for expansion in the capital city and for the ongoing extension of our fiscal consultancy services, especially for banks, financial service providers and real estate companies. Accordingly, we have decided to move to larger offices at Berlin's hotspot Gendarmenmarkt".
Having trained with the Vereins- & Westbank in Hamburg, Dr Eggers studied law – followed by a doctorate – in Freiburg, Geneva and Kiel. His career included partnerships at Arthur Andersen and SUSAT & Partner OHG; most recently, he was a partner with RBS RoeverBroennerSusat in Berlin. His expertise is principally in the fields of real estate, public utilities and banking and financial services, with a primary focus on foreign and domestic real estate transactions, the fiscal aspects of corporate acquisitions and sell-offs, tax consulting in connection with complex corporate structures, the comprehensive counseling of small and mid-sized companies, company succession planning, and the drafting of prospectus audits in accordance with German auditing standard IDW S4.
Dr Eggers is the co-author of Stollfuss's EstG commentary and deals with § 21 EstG (EstG = German Income Tax Law).
