Ashurst has raided Freshfields in Frankfurt, scooping tax partner Matthias Kuhn as it continues to build its German operation.
Kuhn will become the silver circle firm’s second tax partner in Germany and brings the total number of partners there to 19.
Ashurst has been on an aggressive recruitment push under Germany managing partner Simon Beddow, with senior hires from Siemens and Lovells in recent times.
Last year the firm also hired senior Freshfields associate Tobias Krug into the partnership.
Ashurst senior partner Geoffrey Green commented: "The ability of our Frankfurt and Munich offices to attract lateral hires of high calibre is an indication of the firm's strong profile in the German market.
“We welcome Matthias to the firm and look forward to him playing his part in our continuing success in Germany."
