Linklaters has launched a Dutch specialist corporate department with the hiring of Allen & Overy partner Pieter Riemer. Riemer, who will join Linklaters’ Amsterdam office, has been a partner at A&O’s celebrated corporate department for four years. Richard Levy, Linklaters’ Amsterdam partner, said: "We have worked a lot on Dutch-related corporate deals, such as Air France’s merger with KLM, but referred the corporate work to Dutch firms [while handling other aspects of the deal].
