AKD opens new office in Luxembourg

AKD has opened a new office in Luxembourg with corporate, tax, banking and finance, and investment funds practices.

The firm's new office will have a team of six tax specialists and six lawyers, including the hire of three new partners and their respective teams, Bernard, Beerens, Ayzo van Eysinga and Rutger Zaal. 

AKD brought forward the opening of its new Luxembourg office because of its clients increasing demand for advice following Brexit. 

Eysinga specialises in international tax and private equity. Before joining AKD, he was a partner at Stibbe Luxembourg where he founded and headed the tax team. Eysinga also worked at Loyens & Loeff in the Netherlands, Luxembourg and New York. He was made partner in 2009. 

Zaal focuses on Luxembourg and international tax law. He was also a partner at Loyens & Loeff in Luxembourg as well as in Amsterdam and New York. Zaal specialises in international tax solutions for multinationals and investment managers on a variety of transactions including real estate investments, M&A, financing and joint ventures.
