Apart from regular client tax advice, he focuses on transaction-related tax advice such as M&A transactions, PMI restructurings, internal group restructurings, etc. with an international focus.

In this context, Stefan experienced the change of the approach by the German tax administration in tax audits by being generally more aggressive compared to past years. This requires a more focused, concentrated and organised approach on tax audits applied by Stefan. Besides tax technical defence and negotiations in tax audits in which Stefan is engaged, his experience covers tax litigation at different tax courts with a wide range of tax technical topics such as tax accounting, international tax, German participation exemption and German capital gain exemption. Furthermore, he is actively involved in managing competent authority and arbitration procedures.

His experience lets him develop a process and a training programme together with Norbert Endres, external negotiation experts and representatives from the tax administration on "how to professionally manage a tax audit". The training course was released in 2016 and deals with the structured negotiation process in tax audits based on the Harvard Concept. It was further developed by Norbert Endres and in 2017 successfully offered to Deloitte Germany's premium clients to optimise their controversy process and improve the outcome of their tax audits.
