Fabienne has experience in all matters of national and international tax law, including double tax treaties, cross-border withholding tax, German CFC rules and real estate taxation, in particular real estate transfer tax. Her work particularly focuses on tax advice and negotiation of purchase contracts relating to all types of property transactions (asset and share deals of various types of real estate, including office, logistics and hotel properties, project developments and forward deals) and property-related tax issues (e.g. advice on extended trade tax deduction, VAT-related lease contract clauses, real estate transfer tax advice). Furthermore, she advises on investment tax issues and on structuring of open and closed-ended fund vehicles and preparation of acquisition reports. Fabienne offers special tax advisory services, e.g. on tax issues in relation to securities lending and repurchase transactions and structured financial products, as well as on tax compliance / DAC6 (reporting obligations in relation to cross-border tax arrangements). Other mainstays of her practice include private equity and venture capital tax issues, tax advice on restructurings and tax optimization of corporate group structures, as well as tax advice vis-à-vis (tax) authorities and assistance in the context of tax litigation.

Fabienne also has the title of "Diplom-Finanzwirt (Steuerakademie)" and, before becoming a lawyer, she worked for approximately six years at a tax office, where she was responsible for assessing inheritance and gift tax for mainly large business successions.
