Luther leaves Taxand in favour of broader legal network, to be replaced by Flick Gocke Schaumburg
Taxand announced today that its current German member firm, Luther, will be leaving the organisation. Luther wishes to be part of a broader legal network, rather than one focused solely on tax, as is the case for Taxand.
Flick Gocke Schaumburg will replace Luther as Taxand’s member for Germany.
Frederic Donnedieu, Chairman of Taxand, commented: “I am delighted to welcome Flick Gocke Schaumburg to Taxand who are recognised as the leading specialised tax firm in Germany with extensive and long-standing experience in many key sectors. I know Taxand clients will benefit greatly from their outstanding expertise in German and international tax law. I want to thank our colleagues at Luther for their many years of contribution to Taxand and to wish them all the best in their future endeavours.”

Frederic Donnedieu, Chairman, Taxand France
Timothy Wach, Global Managing Director
Ricardo Gomez, Taxand Spain
Mukesh Butani, Taxand India
Keith O’Donnell, Taxand Luxemburg
Veerinderjeet Singh, Taxand Malaysia
Ernie Perez, Taxand US
Marc Sanders, Taxand Netherlands
