Laurent Engel leads the tax policy, dispute resolution and litigation practice within KPMG in Luxembourg.
He has built up an experience in advising a number of the Top 20 Luxembourg banks over the past 15 years, becoming the best-equipped individual to identify tax risks and to provide strategic advice on tax risk management, including ex-ante negotiation of advance tax agreements.
Laurent believes in long term relationships. With an exception of two years, where he worked as a member of the Luxembourg Bar in litigation, he has spent his entire career at KPMG. To Laurent, "great service is about clients receiving the best quality work, on time and on budget from our firm. It's about listening. About resolving problems early". This is an asset when providing services in relation to tax audits and ex-post negotiation of settlements with administrative authorities.
Laurent is at his best when spending time with interdisciplinary teams. Tax controversy is based on domestic legislation, EU Law, and more recently, BEPS considerations. Involving subject matter experts in each of these areas is how Laurent manages to inspire his clients when helping them develop a litigation strategy, handle court proceedings and the management of tax controversies generally.
Laurent is fluent in English, French and German.
