Paulus Merks swaps DLA Piper for Houthoff
Paulus Merks has joined Houthoff's tax advisory practice in the Netherlands as a partner, moving from DLA Piper.
Merks is an expert in domestic and international tax law who advises on M&A transactions, restructurings, reorganisations, public offerings and transfer pricing. He also litigates disputes with the tax authorities, as well as advising on general tax-law matters. Merks regularly advises US and other non-Dutch companies on how best to structure their worldwide operations and acquisitions. He has previously worked as a tax lawyer in New York, Paris, Chicago and San Jose (California).
The firm plans to double the size of its tax advisory practice by the end of 2018.
