About us

You can know something about everything or know a lot about something. We decided on the latter and concentrated on VAT law, customs law and criminal law. Our specialization is the basis for the qualified, practical and successful advice we offer our clients. Our lawyers are in demand as acknowledged experts who are able to provide clients with clear and precise approaches and solutions. Our expertise is underscored by our regular contributions to leading professional publications, as well as by the requests we receive to participate as speakers at significant lectures and seminars.

KMLZ stands for Küffner, Maunz, Langer and Zugmaier. It is a name which has become synonymous with VAT. Founded 10 years ago, today our team, of more than 35 professionals in Munich and Düsseldorf, works on both national and international cases, predominantly in the fields of VAT and customs law.

How we work.
We do not use the subjunctive form. We provide you with clear statements. We commit ourselves because we are convinced. We will demonstrate our conviction – at home and abroad, before the tax authorities, and if necessary, also before the courts.

Our work does not stop at borders.
We advise our clients on matters in Europe and worldwide. We can draw on a strong network of experienced and leading VAT experts, in all Member States of the European Union and beyond, to provide our clients with international advice at the highest levels.

We support both small and large companies.
Our clients include companies of all sizes (from SMC to DAX 30 listed companies) as well as private individuals. Our clients rely on our VAT expertise both in large and important cases and on a routine day to day basis.

We offer efficiency
Rely on our expertise and thereby avoid time-consuming research and unnecessary risks. Treat us as your outsourced VAT department.
