DLA Piper’s head of tax Franz Althuber has left to start his own firm, Althuber Spornberger & Partner.

Althuber was a partner at DLA Piper for 10 years. He was also the co-head of the firm’s European tax controversy group. Before joining the firm, Althuber was a consultant at firms such as LeitnerLeitner, PwC Austria and Arthur Anderson.

The other founding partners of the new firm are Maria Althuber-Griesmayr and Martin Spornberger. Althuber-Griesmayr was a senior associate at Wolf Theiss and DLA Piper, whereas Spornberger was the head of tax criminal law and tax litigation at PwC.

Althuber Spornberger & Partner focuses on tax disputes, criminal law and directors and officers (D&O) liability, advising clients ranging from private foundations and small-to-medium-sized businesses to international corporate groups.
