Caspar von Schönfels mainly advises companies and entrepreneurs on the development and implementation of sustainable structures, taking into account the tax structuring possibilities. This includes the tax-strategic setup in the founding phase of start-ups and joint ventures as well as the structural support of VC financing rounds and the further development in ongoing business activities and in transformation and restructuring processes. 

In addition, Caspar advises entrepreneurs or wealthy private individuals on structuring their assets in order to channel the mutual risks of the individual assets, and on the tax-optimized structuring of asset successions. In this context, tax advice covers the aspects of income and inheritance tax law as well as the relevant issues in the event of a default abroad.  

In addition, Caspar represents clients in tax audits and in litigation with the tax authorities before all instances, ranging from extrajudicial disputes with the tax authorities to appeal proceedings before the Federal Fiscal Court.
