AKD expands its international tax and structuring practice
Benelux law firm AKD expands its international tax and structuring practice with the arrival of two new tax partners: Myrthe Görtzen and Robert Jean Kloprogge. Tax lawyer Hans Galavazi also recently joined AKD as a partner. The arrival of the new partners is in line with the international growth strategy of AKD lawyers, notaries and tax advisers.
AKD’s managing partner Erwin Rademakers: “Earlier this year, we expanded our investment funds practice in Luxembourg. The strengthening and expansion of our tax practice in the Netherlands allows us to meet the increased demand for specialist and integrated corporate and tax advice to navigate our clients through the changing international tax landscape. AKD’s full-service offer makes us particularly suitable to provide pro-active advice to our international clients doing business in the Benelux.”
