Norton Rose reinforces German tax team with Thio Danz, currently VP Tax at Citigroup Global Deutschland
Norton Rose has announced that Thilo Danz (38), LL.M. is joining Norton Rose LLP’s German tax law team as Of Counsel on 1 October 2011 in the Frankfurt office. He is currently Vice President of the tax department at Citigroup Global Deutschland AG.
Thilo has extensive experience in the tax restructuring of tax transactions and in financial products, with a focus on asset structured products. Having previously worked for an international legal practice he is familiar with the perspective of both law firms and banks. He can therefore cover banking specific legal issues far beyond the tax perspective.
Thilo’s hire into the German tax team follows on from the recent appointment of tax partner Dr. Uwe Eppler, who joined Norton Rose LLP’s new Hamburg office in May 2011 from DLA Piper, along with seven partners and 26 lawyers. In 2011, Hamburg became Norton Rose LLP’s third office in Germany, alongside its long-established offices in Munich and Frankfurt.
