Flick Gocke Schaumburg moves out of Germany

Flick Gocke Schaumburg is extending its services beyond Germany for the first time by starting operations in Zurich and Vienna.

The Zurich office will be led by Karsten Randt and Jörg Schauf, two of the firm’s Bonn partners, and will advise clients on the German tax law issues, such as voluntary disclosure, related to assets in Switzerland and on the double tax treaty that is planned between Switzerland and Germany. Randt and Schauf are tax crime specialists, as well as having practices that deal with white-collar and regulatory matters. They will divide their time between Bonn and Zurich. The firm is also hiring a Daniel Holenstein, a Swiss lawyer and certified tax expert from Umbricht Attorneys at Law, who has extensive experience in matters of mutual legal and administrative assistance.

Flick Gocke Schaumburg has also opened a German desk at LeitnerLeitner in Vienna, with whom it has had a strategic alliance since 2010.

Thomas Rödder, Flick Gocke Schaumburg’s managing partner, said the moves were based on the firm’s international strategy of building relationships, not competing, with partner firms abroad.
