Austrian firm Wolf Theiss has hired an experienced Canadian tax lawyer to head its tax practice.
Elinore Richardson, formerly a partner at Canada’s Borden Ladner Gervais, will be based mainly in Wolf Theiss’s Vienna office as a partner. Her hire is aimed at bolstering Wolf Theiss’s international tax offering across the Central and South-East Europe region.
