tax law

Our Tax Practice has knowledge based on years of experience and a depth and breadth of tax law skills that few are able to match. We provide efficient tax and business solutions by combining this strength with commercial acumen. 

Members of our Tax Practice across the Bowman Gilfillan Africa Group work closely together to advise on investments and operations in various African countries, ensuring that all aspects of international transactions are thoroughly considered and planned. 

Services range from the tax aspects of corporate transactions (including mergers and acquisitions, private equity transactions, cross-border investment structures and corporate restructures), to financial structuring, project finance matters and the tax implications of employment decisions, and extend to tax litigation and dispute resolution. 

We have specialist knowledge of a variety of sectors including construction and infrastructure, energy, financial services, logistics, mining, real estate and telecommunications. 

Our clients include leading corporates, financial institutions and individuals in the countries in which we operate. We also work with international law firms to service their clients expanding into Africa.
