Wolf Theiss turns to Canada’s Borden Ladner for hire of tax head

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.

As well as practising Ontario and Quebecois law, Richardson is qualified in New York and England and Wales.

Wolf Theiss tax partner Niklas Schmidt described Richardson as a “pre-eminent force” in tax law. Schmidt added that she would focus on international tax planning for investors looking to expand their businesses into Central and South-East Europe.
