De Brauw is to vote this week on whether to hire senior tax partner Dick Hofland, an international tax and structured finance specialist, along with a junior partner. It is also considering hiring Paul Sleurink, another tax expert who left Merrill Lynch last year.
Hofland is a highly rated tax specialist who was previously a partner at the Dutch tax firm Loyens & Volkmaars, which merged with the Rotterdam office of the legacy Loeff Claeys Verbeke on 1 January 2000.
De Brauw and Freshfields were both unavailable for comment.
