Sara Luder is the head of tax at Slaughter and May. With 25 years of experience, Luder advises clients on all aspects of corporate tax, transactions, restructuring and asset finance. The team of eight partners and 21 other professionals has expertise in all aspects of tax, including particular focus areas such as complex M&A transactions. This spans key areas such as cross-border issues and pension de-risking.
The firm has an impressive client base, including GlaxoSmithKline, Deutsche Bank, Royal Dutch Shell and The Coca-Cola Company. "We use Slaughter and May's tax team for the full range of services," said one client. "In the last year this has primarily been in dispute resolution with the tax authorities and on post-acquisition business integration."
The client added: "In both matters the firm's service has been exemplary. Their responsiveness is excellent and the commerciality of their advice is in my view unparalleled. I would strongly recommend them."
