How Philip is building a better working world

By assisting our clients in the pharmaceutical, healthcare and chemical sectors with their tax and legal issues, we help them meet their obligations as efficiently as possible without frictional losses as e.g. due to international double taxation. As an example, this could help ensure that medicine will be delivered across borders without delay and be used effectively in hospital.

We are happy when contributing to the successful delivery of a life-saving drug to a patient without delay – for example at a customs border – by providing sound tax advice. The same applies to chemical companies, whose products for everyday objects such as cars, clothing, cosmetics, etc. must be included on time into the complex international production chains.
