Fichardt leaves BLP for Clifford Chance

Clifford Chance announced today that Liesl Fichardt, leader of Berwin Leighton Paisner’s contentious tax practice, is joining its London office.

Fichardt has advised multinationals, financial institutions and high net worth individuals on a number of tax and VAT disputes and has conducted cases in the UK Tax Tribunal, the courts of appeal and the European Court of Justice.

Her expertise covers both UK and cross-border disputes, including all areas of international tax involving the EU treaty, double tax conventions and the EU directives in relation to tax and VAT.

Fichardt has considerable court and tribunal experience in the UK and internationally, having practised as a tax barrister for 13 years before joining Dorsey & Whitney in 2006, where she advised on a number of well-documented litigation cases. She moved to BLP in 2008.
