Grant Thornton recruits Terra Firma deals chief

Former Terra Firma director joins UK’s fifth largest accountancy firm as tax expert

Business and financial adviser
Grant Thornton has appointed Paul
Cooper to tax partner in the firm’s London transactions tax team.

He was previously a director at Terra Firma, the private equity fund.

Cooper, who joined Grant Thornton in June this year, has significant
experience in transaction tax. He has spent over ten years advising FTSE 100
clients, privately held businesses and private equity funds on a wide range of
large UK and pan-European transactions. He has also been an M&A tax partner
at KPMG.

In his role at Grant Thornton, Cooper will focus on transactions in the
private equity and corporate sectors. He will also provide tax advice for
clients undertaking restructurings and re-negotiating finance.

Stephen Quest, head of transactions tax, said: ‘His experience bolsters an
already strong offering and I am confident the transactions tax team will see
growth in deal advice as a result. The current economic climate is challenging,
but still offers great opportunity for transactions work.’

Grant Thornton’s dedicated team of transactions tax specialists advises
shareholders, businesses and private equity investors on acquisitions,
disposals, refinancings, restructurings and flotations.
