During more than 35 years of advising international corporations and leading law firms, Dr Voegele has specialised in the defence of major international transfer pricing and IP cases. He has developed innovative economic structures for transfer pricing strategies which have become the industry standard. He has led hundreds of large transfer pricing and IP projects and defence cases for clients in a wide range of industries all over the world. In recent years, he has defended against transfer pricing audits and litigation in North America, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, and Germany.
In recent years, Dr Voegele and his colleagues Philip de Homont and Tom Braukmann have established new standards for the separation and quantification of IP, financial instruments, and contractual clauses. They have advanced discussion within the industry by frequently explaining their methods at conferences and in publications. Using economic reasoning, they lead arbitrations and testify as expert witnesses in court. Their insights have helped shape transfer pricing and audit standards in Germany and Austria, and they regularly exchange views with tax inspectors at conferences and seminars. In negotiations, they find well-structured and understandable arguments that are convincing and relatable.
Dr Voegele regularly publishes articles and books on transfer pricing and international tax planning, and is the author and editor of the two leading German commentaries on IP, transfer pricing, and economic consulting: Transfer Pricing and Intellectual Property. His publications have anticipated many aspects of the recent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) discussions, such as the use of profit split methods or the analysis and quantification of risk. He has spoken at more than 250 conferences and seminars on transfer pricing and IP in Europe, the US, and Asia.
Dr Voegele holds a PhD in economics and an MSc in tax and business administration from the University of Mannheim.
WWL says: Alexander Voegele is "very good at presenting complex cases".
