As DFDL continues its growth, we will continue to offer tax services in an increasing number of jurisdictions. This strategic hire reaffirms our commitment to this integrated tax and legal capabilities model which is quite unique throughout South-East Asia. We are very confident Rolf, with the help of Jack Sheehan, will continue to maintain the high level of tax advisory services that our clients have come to expect from DFDL over the past 18 years.” Martin Desautels, Managing Partner, DFDL.
