SJ Berwin Germany has re-hired a partner who left the firm three years ago to establish his own tax boutique.

Markus Hill will join SJ Berwin on 1 November as a partner in the Frankfurt tax team. He originally joined the firm in 2002 as a partner, but left three years ago to set up a tax advisory practice Hill & Partner with his wife .

Hill was the partner responsible for clients Cognetas, Star Capital and ECM, as well as property clients, and specialises in tax, corporate tax, M&A and private client advice.

Rüdiger Knopf, a member of SJ Berwin’s German management committee, said: “Within the tax department Markus was known as one of our go-to partners for clients, associates and partners in other practice groups.

“Our clients and deal partners admired his clear structures and innovative advice and we’re truly delighted to have him back on the team.”
