Career development

After a stay abroad in Great Britain, Dr. Deniz Hoffmann began studying law in Berlin. The part-time work in a tax office during his studies and during his legal clerkship was groundbreaking for his later appointment as a tax lawyer.

After working in the tax law departments of international logistics and consulting companies in Frankfurt am Main and Zurich, he worked as a research assistant and lecturer at the Institute of Law of the University of Zurich while pursuing his doctorate.

As an attorney and specialist solicitor for tax law, he initially worked in medium-sized law firms in Frankfurt am Main, where he advised his clients primarily on tax structuring, succession planning in gift and inheritance tax law as well as real estate and land transfer tax issues, and regularly represented them successfully before the tax courts and the Federal Fiscal Court.

He joined ROSE & PARTNER Frankfurt am Main and took over the tax law department in 2020.

Private

When he's not training for the next running event on his favorite track on the banks of the Main, you can meet him in the mountains or in faraway countries, depending on the season. In his backpack there is always a thriller or the racing bike story of a tour hero. In his adopted city of Frankfurt, the Berlin-born artist lets his wife drag him to art exhibitions, and each time he is thrilled by the diverse cultural offerings of the Main metropolis.
