Positive mention of Horten's tax group

Horten's Tier 2 rating is based on recommendations from clients and colleagues in the market and on a comprehensive market analysis. ITR World Tax states the following on Horten's tax group:

“Head of tax at Horten, Niclas Holst Sonne, comes highly recommended by peers and clients. He joined the firm in 2013 and the team has continuously grown since, taking on two new members this year.

Holst Sonne has a wealth of experience in the establishment and implementation of incentive schemes and is active in direct tax and VAT litigation. The team offers the full suite of tax services and has extensive experience within M&A, corporate tax structuring and reorganisations, cross-border taxation, real estate tax planning and transactions, the modelling and implementation of employee share schemes, VAT, as well as in litigation within tax, VAT and transfer pricing.

Other firms praised Holst Sonne and the team's performance and clients state the tax advice delivered was dedicated and professional. One client said: "My experience is that they are very professional and that they are delivering in time. I will definitely recommend Horten to others."

A new addition to the team this year was Malte Søgaard, former EY senior consultant. He advises on general direct and indirect tax and specialises in corporate tax.”

The improved rating marks the continuous progress and influx of clients that Horten's tax group has experienced in recent years.
