During more than 35 years of advising international corporations and leading law firms, Alex 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.
Alex is arbiter in Mutual Agreement Procedures between Germany and other countries dealing with big transfer pricing cases.
Together with his son, Jean-Benoit Voegele who is leading the transfer pricing EY office in Basel (CH), he has 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, he leads arbitrations and testify as expert witness in court. His insights have helped shape transfer pricing and audit standards in Germany and Europe. Alex and Jean-Benoit regularly exchange views with tax inspectors through publications and seminars. In negotiations, they find well-structured and understandable arguments that are convincing and relatable.
Alex and Jean-Benoit regularly publish articles and books on transfer pricing and intangibles. They are authors and editor of the two leading German commentaries on Intangibles, transfer pricing, and economic consulting: "Transfer Pricing" and "Intangibles" of C.H.Beck. They are also authors in „Steuerplanung und Compliance" of NWB and other books and teach at lecturing courses such as at the Management Circle. Their publications have anticipated many aspects of the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) discussions, such as the use of profit split methods or the analysis and quantification of risk. Alex has spoken at more than 350 conferences and seminars on transfer pricing, Intangibles and arbitration in Europe, the United States and Asia.
Alex 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.
