Independent law firm Flick Gocke Schaumburg is opening an office in Düsseldorf in early 2018, drawing on a team of tax and transfer pricing experts from its Bonn office.

To form the core of the new Düsseldorf office, and tax lawyers Jens Hageböke and Markus Keuthen will be moving from the Flick Gocke Schaumburg’s Bonn office.

The firm has also hired transfer pricing expert Michael Puls from Deloitte, who will start on February 1 2018.

Puls spent six years working for Big Four firms before moving to Flick Gocke Schaumburg in 2007, where he stayed until 2013. He then worked for Luther and later Deloitte, where he headed the transfer pricing practice. Puls is experienced in transfer pricing and international tax, and focuses on global documentation, tax planning and structuring, tax audits, mutual agreements and arbitration proceedings.

The team will also receive support from Flick Gocke Schaumburg’s tax partners Thomas Rödder, Joachim Schmitt and Xaver Ditz as well as other partners.

Additionally, six associated partners will be working in the Düsseldorf office all or most of the time, including tax lawyers Christina Hildebrand, Ralf Dremel and Marc Jülicher, and newly appointed associated partners Alexander Hasbach and Carsten Quilitzsch.
