Miller & Chevalier, the US best friend of Price-waterhouseCoopers (PwC), has opened a Brussels office
The 50-partner tax boutique has taken on tax specialist Jan van Haaren from Benelux firm Loyens & Loeff to be managing director of the new office. The Brussels office will reflect Miller & Chevalier's core Washington practice, concentrating on tax and regulatory work. The office is intended to service US clients with interests in Europe and attract new European clients. Partner Sam Marucci said that the capture of van Haaren was a key reason behind the timing of the firm's entry into Europe. He added: "We recognised that business is going global and we didn't have the reputation in Europe that we wanted." Like many European firms, Loyens & Loeff has an age-ceiling for partners, which van Haaren had hit. However, van Haaren's age was not an issue for the US firm.
