Our global tax practice is market-leading, frequently advising on the world’s largest and most complex deals, and I am sure that under Oliver’s tenure we will continue to offer our clients unparalleled holistic advice and outstanding client service. I would like to thank Dick Hofland for his enormous contribution to the practice which has gone from strength to strength under his leadership.”
