Baker & McKenzie’s Amsterdam office is due to lose a large group of lawyers. News came out today that a team of about 15 lawyers with at least two partners would be leaving in order to establish a new player in the Dutch market.
The firm confirmed to the IFLR that head of private equity Marc van Campen (pictured) and a part of his team, including investment funds head Maurits Tausk, have formerly resigned.
It has also been reported that head of corporate/M&A and IFLR1000 listed leading lawyer Jan Peters, head of the firm’s European tax transaction group Marcello Distaso and M&A notary Edwin Liem may also be leaving – potentially leading to further departures of lawyers – with a view to joining the new establishing firm. However, these moves could not be confirmed.
