GSK Stockmann expands tax law practice with Heiko Stoll

With Heiko Stoll joining GSK Stockmann, the firm is continuing to expand its tax law practice. On 1 January 2021, the expert in tax law will start as an Equity Partner at the Frankfurt office.

Heiko Stoll is a lawyer and tax advisor who has longstanding expertise in national and international tax law. He specialises on providing tax advice to financial institutions, asset managers and institutional investors in the areas of investment tax law, structured finance and financial products. Furthermore, he advises on tax aspects of M&A and real estate transactions as well as corporate restructuring.

As of 1 January 2021, he will move from Simmons & Simmons and join GSK Stockmann. With his arrival, GSK Stockmann is expanding, in line with the firm’s growth, its tax law practice which now comprises 11 professionals.

Petra Eckl, tax partner at GSK Stockmann: “We are very pleased to have gained a renowned expert for our tax law team. This will allow us to broaden the successful work of our practice group with a new partner as well as to continue the development of the funds tax area. With his expertise, he is also an excellent addition to our strong regulatory practice. The demand for advice on tax law has increased continuously in all areas in recent times. Irrespective of the continued and very lively transaction business, the compliance requirements for our clients are also becoming more stringent. Along with this, various legislative measures increasingly require the readjustment of existing structures. This excellent appointment at partner level will enable us to accelerate our growth and optimise the integration of tax law with other sectors of our firm.”

Heiko Stoll: “I am very much looking forward to advising on mandates alongside my future colleagues at GSK Stockmann, in a leading independent commercial law firm, which offers in particular outstanding expertise in the sectors of funds, real estate investment and asset management, financial services and capital markets, as well as a broadly based expertise in Germany and Luxembourg. The goal is to expand and strengthen GSK Stockmann’s position in this law area, as a team together with the established tax law practice around Petra Eckl, Dirk Koch and Mathilde Ostertag, as well as to use the synergies resulting from the broad real estate, finance and corporate law practice at GSK Stockmann.”
