Bergman & Eek is a Boutique Law Firm with a niche focus on real estate, transactions (M&A) and tax law. We are of the opinion that each assignment should be handled by a lawyer with excellence in the relevant legal area. This makes it possible for us, together with the client, to find needs-adapted and cost-effective solutions.
Our real estate assignments relate to purchases, sales, ownership structures and financing of real estate. Different issues for real estate owners and tenants relating to lease agreements, property development, redevelopment, rent negotiation, detailed planning, building permits and mortgages are managed on an ongoing basis. We also carry out due diligence investigations of real estate and real estate companies.
The area of transactions includes, among other things, business transfers, mergers and acquisitions, collaborations and joint projects. We have extensive experience of transaction assignments and we always have a number of ongoing transactions. We assist our clients throughout the entire process. Involving Bergman & Eek early on in this type of assignments is advantageous since initial business decisions often has great legal significance, not least in terms of tax. When it comes to major acquisition processes, we can handle a lot of information quickly and securely.
Most actions a company undertakes entail a fiscal impact. We have extensive experience in tax advisory services in many different situations, ranging from taxation and VAT management in day-to-day operations to implementation of successions as well as more complicated transactions and tax issues concerning owner-managed companies. Through continuous contact and reconciliation with our clients, we can ensure that tax aspects are included in all decisions. Tax consequences are something that should be investigated before new projects or plans are launched. We also have many years of experience in tax procedures.

Information relating to reportable cross border tax arrangments (DAC 6)
Due to the regulated duty of confidentiality that applies to lawyers who are members of the Swedish Bar Association, we are prevented from reporting any arrangement referred to in the EU directive on the automatic exchange of information relating to reportable cross-border arrangements (DAC 6) to the tax authorities. Our duty of confidentiality applies unless our client releases us from it by expressly instructing us to report.
In the event the client does not instruct us to report, then primarily the other advisers are responsible for ensuring that the transaction is reported (and ultimately the client). Other advisers may thus be required to report arrangements to the tax authorities; however, our duty of confidentiality prevents us from informing other advisors that they should report, meaning that we will not inform other advisers of their obligation to report.
