Dr. Falk Loose
Falk Loose advises on all tax aspects arising in the M&A, private equity and venture capital world and has extensive experience in distressed debt and insolvency scenarios.
Falk has helped clients manoeuvre through the "jungle" of German and international tax law for more than a decade. Besides his transactional lawyer role, he is his clients trusted counsel in difficult tax compliance, audit or even criminal tax law situations. Due to the complex German tax law, there is often room for deviating arguments, but also a good chance to make mistakes.
Falk advises many German and international clients of varying industry sectors, but especially many life science companies. He is a member of Hogan Lovells' global Life Science Transaction Team. His colleagues and clients appreciate his talent to explain complex tax law in a digestible manner.
Falk is qualified both as a lawyer and certified tax advisor (Steuerberater). Before joining the firm, he was Principal Associate in another leading law firm's tax practice group. He studied law at the Free University of Berlin and the Université Pierre Mendès France in Grenoble, France. He obtained his doctorate of law from the Free University of Berlin with a doctoral thesis on European tax law.
