Taylor Wessing merges with firm in Netherlands
Taylor Wessing is merging with Deterink, a Netherlands based firm. Deterink has seven partners and 47 lawyers, all of whom join Taylor Wessing as of 1 September. Taylor will add Deterink's Amsterdam and Eindhoven offices and the firm's headcount now reaches over 1,200 lawyers across its 28 offices.
Deterink focused on corporate and M&A, IP, IT and employment practice. The firm considers developing disputes and real estate practices as potential for growth.
From Taylor Wessing's top 50 clients, 34 have a presence in the Netherlands, giving the firm good reason to expand its reach there.
