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.
