Legal services

Depending on local laws, customs, and business practices, the structure through which legal services are offered by a Deloitte entity in a particular country may vary. In the United Kingdom Deloitte LLP provides advice in areas such as tax litigation, immigration, employee benefits and the tax, accounting or other implications of legal documents but does not provide general legal opinions nor engage in the provision of services that are specifically reserved to the legal profession.  

UK Legal Services include: 

Outside the United Kingdom, Deloitte Legal Services can include advice relating to:

Litigation services 

Whether you have a dispute or anticipate a dispute with HMRC, Deloitte can offer a range of relevant services. HMRC’s Litigation Settlement Strategy, the Tax Tribunals and EU law all impact on the operation of business in the UK and shape the face of dispute resolution. Our award winning team has extensive experience in direct tax and indirect tax dispute resolution and now includes CEDR certified mediators. We can advise on and assist with all stages of the dispute process including:

  • Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • negotiations with HMRC
  • HMRC requests for information

Acquisition, divestiture, joint venture 

Expanding your business or shifting your strategy may require specialised legal knowledge that your existing team cannot provide. Deloitte can assist with legal matters throughout the acquisition and divesture process: drafting required legal documentation from the letter of intent to the sales & purchase and related agreements, assisting with negotiations, and providing post-acquisition legal services. Highly skilled and experienced lawyers, working together with other Deloitte professionals in tax, corporate finance and financial advisory, can guide you through the stages of your project in a coordinated way, thereby reducing associated risks.
