Heuking Kühn hires a tax team from FPS in Frankfurt
Lawyer, tax advisor and notary Dr. Uwe Hartmann and his team will quit FPS to join Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek’s Frankfurt office, effective 1 January 2018.
As an equity partner, Hartmann will be joined by salaried partner Stephan Nikschick and senior associate Catrin Merten.
Uwe Hartmann specializes in funds structuring under tax, civil and corporate law, corporate restructuring, corporate succession, and M&A transactions. In addition, he has extensive experience in optimizing estates, succession plans, financing, investment and corporate structures, as well as advice related to audits, fiscal court and tax proceedings. As a notary, he works primarily in corporate, real estate and inheritance law. Prior to FPS, Hartmann had been an equity partner at Norton Rose during eleven years.
Stephan Nikschick focuses on representing credit institutions and mid-sized and large companies in commercial, corporate, and particularly insolvency law. He advises creditors prior to and during insolvency proceedings, as well as debtors or their management on issues related to restructuring and possible liability issues.
With the arrival of this new team, Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek is expected to gain expertise in corporate and tax law in Frankfurt, but also strengthen its competence in the notary field, which to date has been so fare served merely from the Berlin office composed of six notaries.
