Field Fisher Waterhouse boosts tax capability with new hires

11 November 2009

European law firm Field Fisher Waterhouse announces today the appointments of partner Pierre-Philippe Hendrickx and senior associate Jennifer Santos. The team, who specialise in international tax, join the firm’s Brussels office from Liedekerke Wolters Waelbroeck Kirkpatrick.

Pierre-Philippe Hendrickx focuses on Belgian and international tax advisory, transactional and litigation work. This includes assisting clients in the corporate and financial sectors on a wide range of tax matters, including corporate reorganisations, public and private M&A, structuring of investments in the audiovisual sector (“Tax Shelter”), employee incentive plans and taxation of artists and professional athletes. He is the author of various publications on tax law.

Pierre-Philippe has over twenty years’ experience advising on tax law issues and has been a partner at Liedekerke Wolters Waelbroeck Kirkpatrick since 2001. His appointment is the third lateral hire the Brussels office has made in the last two months, closely following those of IP partner Stijn Debaene and regulatory partner Véronique Vanden Acker who both joined the firm from Allen and Overy. The appointments of Pierre-Philippe and Jennifer Santos bring the total number of lawyers in Brussels to 14 partners and 28 fee earners.  The Brussels tax team will form part of the firm’s wider European tax practice, led by partner, Graeme Nuttall. The firm’s UK tax capability also grew this year with the appointment of partner, Derek Hill who joined the firm from Herbert Smith.

Eric Cusas, managing partner of the Brussels office, said: “I am pleased to welcome Pierre-Philippe and Jennifer to the growing Brussels office. The team’s appointment increases the firm’s international and European tax capability and means that we can now offer additional tax expertise directly to our clients in Brussels.”
