Alexander Voegele is a well-established figure in the German market who is highly esteemed for his work on transfer pricing and business valuation in arbitration disputes.
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, IP and state aid cases. He has developed solutions for measuring value contributions and damages that 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 state aid cases, pharmaceutical damages matters, and transfer pricing audits and litigation in North America, Scandinavia, Europe and Germany.
Working with his colleagues Dr Yves Hervé and Philip de Homont, in recent years, Dr Voegele has established new standards for the separation and quantification of IP, damages and the use of profit splits. He has developed innovative value chain and value network analysis for digital business strategies, and has advanced discussion within the industry by frequently explaining his methods at conferences and in publications. Using economic reasoning, he leads arbitrations and testifies as an expert witness in court. His insights, and those of his colleagues, have helped shape transfer pricing and audit standards in Germany and Austria, and he regularly exchanges views with tax inspectors at conferences and seminars. In negotiations, he finds well-structured and understandable arguments that are convincing and relatable.
Dr Voegele regularly publishes articles and books on transfer pricing and international tax planning. He 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, and the analysis and quantification of risk. He has spoken at more than 350 conferences and seminars on transfer pricing and IP in Europe, the USA and Asia.
Dr Voegele holds a PhD in economics, and an MSc in tax and business administration from the University of Mannheim.
