During more than 35 years of advising international corporations and leading law firms, Dr Voegele has specialised in the defence of major international transfer pricing and IP cases. He has developed solutions for measuring value contributions and damages which have become the industry standard. He has led hundreds of large transfer pricing, IP and State Aid projects and defence cases for clients in a wide range of industries all over the world. In recent years, he has defended against transfer pricing audits and litigation in North America, Scandinavia, Europe and Germany.
In recent years, Dr Voegele and his colleagues Dr. Yves Hervé and Philip de Homont have established new standards for the separation and quantification of IP, damages and the use of profit splits. They have developed value chain and value network analysis for digital business strategies and have advanced the discussion within the industry by frequently explaining their methods at conferences and in publications. Using economic reasoning, they lead arbitrations and testify as expert witnesses in court. Their insights have helped shape transfer pricing and audit standards in Germany and Europe, and they regularly exchange views with tax inspectors at conferences and seminars. In negotiations, they find well-structured and understandable arguments that are convincing and relatable.
Dr Voegele and his colleagues Dr. Yves Hervé and Philip de Homont regularly publish articles and books on transfer pricing and international tax planning. Dr Voegele is the author and editor of the two leading German commentaries on IP, transfer pricing, and economic consulting: Transfer Pricing and Intellectual Property. His publications have anticipated many aspects of the recent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) discussions, such as the use of profit split methods or the analysis and quantification of risk. He has spoken at more than 350 conferences and seminars on transfer pricing, IP and arbitration in Europe, the United States and Asia.
Dr Voegele holds a PhD in economics and an MSc in tax and business administration from the University of Mannheim. He is a German Wirtschaftsprüfer, Steuerberater and French Commissaire aux comptes.
