    I'm an International Business lawyer who specializes in International Tax, Contract and Corporate Law. My activity on oDesk focuses on providing individuals and companies with comprehensive legal and tax advice on the issues which arise from their day-to-day business activity. The core of my activity may be summed up as follows: 1) assisting individuals and companies in structuring their international business transactions (e.g. cross-boarder Purchase and Sale Agreements, Profit Repatriations, Company Reorganizations,Divestitures and Dissolutions) from a tax-efficient standpoint. This involves the assessment of the likely tax consequences of cross-boarder operations according to EU Tax Law and the International Double-Taxation Agreements. 2) drafting, reviewing and amending international business contracts (e.g. Purchase and Sale Agreements, Employment Contracts, Operating Agreements, Partnership Agreements, Services Contracts) with a particular focus on the tax optimization. 3) doing legal research on International Tax Law, US Tax Law, European Union Tax Law, French Tax Law and Italian Tax Law. I've authored various working papers and articles on different International Tax issues like double taxation within the EU as well as a comparative outlook of the German and the Italian Tax systems.  less
