Urs Breitsprecher is part of the M&A steering committee. Based in Germany he has valuable expertise in Corporate Tax matters which serves IR and its members well.
Together with a keen sense of justice, my interest in the commercial interactions between law and the economy caused me to pursue a legal career. My motivation came from my daily interaction with people, and the opportunity to engage and support them, and also the joy of being able to achieve something through advocacy on their behalf, whether in court, or through negotiation. I value having direct contact with my clients; to me, building a personal and trusting relationship with them, one with a high measure of reliability is paramount.
