Nauta Dutilh is capitalising on Luxembourgs increasingly attractive fiscal environment by expanding its new office in the country. The firm has hired Loyens & Loeff senior tax associate Frédéric Feyten as a partner and plans to add a number of junior tax specialists. Nauta opened in Luxembourg in November 2002, when it relocated Rotterdam tax partner Derk Prinsen to launch the office. The firm is now committed to focusing its presence in the Benelux and has pulled out of Spain and France, where it previously practised local law. However, it remains committed to its representative offices in London and New York. Prinsen said Nauta was encouraged by Luxembourgs commitment to "creating a very attractive and solid fiscal environment". He added: "In time we will add corporate and banking and securities expertise to our practice." Prinsen himself is planning to qualify in Luxembourg.
