Flick Gocke Schaumburg to open in Düsseldorf
The tax specialist firm is set to open an office in Düsseldorf at the beginning of 2018.
The new office has an important team of tax and corporate lawyers, working closely with the head office in Bonn.
Tax lawyers Jens Hageböke and Markus Keuthen will be moving from the firm’s Bonn office to Düsseldorf. Jens Hageböke is a public auditor and tax advisor focusing on conversion tax law, corporate and group tax law, accounting, reorganizations and international tax law. He also represents companies in tax court proceedings. Markus Keuthen, lawyer and tax advisor, specializes in reorganizations, the taxation of partnerships and conversion tax law.
Transfer pricing expert Michael Puls is to join the new office from Deloitte as of February 1, 2018. His expertise covers international tax law and transfer pricing, with a focus on global documentation, tax planning and structuring projects (including relocation of functions), monitoring of tax audits, and (preliminary) mutual agreements and arbitration proceedings.
Substantial support will come from Bonn-based tax partners Thomas Rödder, Joachim Schmitt and Xaver Ditz; corporate lawyer Jan Giedinghagen; and Jörg Stalleiken and Michael Holtz, both specializing in succession planning/private clients. In addition, six associated partners will operate from the Düsseldorf office all or most of the time: tax experts Christina Hildebrand, Ralf Dremel and Marc Jülicher; newly appointed associated partners Alexander Hasbach and Carsten Quilitzsch; and corporate lawyer Thomas Lakenberg.
Chairman of Flick Gocke Schaumburg, Thomas Rödder, said: “Opening in Düsseldorf demonstrates our firm’s close ties to the Rhine-Ruhr region, where we have enjoyed the trust of many large corporations and family-owned businesses for decades.”
