Barbara specializes in legal and tax advisory on management and employee shareholdings, management in M&A processes, as well as employee and management incentives of all kinds. Her clients are managers and employees, as well as investors and employers. Her dual qualification as a lawyer and tax advisor also makes her a sought-after expert in supervising tax audits and legal proceedings. The knowledge gained from her extensive and long-standing advisory practice is incorporated into numerous publications and specialist lectures. Due to the considerable complexity of the fields of advisory, Barbara considers it very important to offer clear verbal communication of the facts, in addition to sound legal advice.
