KPMG has appointed indirect tax litigation partner Amanda Brown as head of overall tax litigation as part of a department reshuffle at the Big Four firm.
Brown will take the reins of the practice, with Boaz Goren – formerly of PwC Legal – and Robert Hartley – previously at law practice DLA Piper – joining the firm as they take on private client and corporate taxation roles respectively.
Hilary Waters, who was promoted to director at KPMG in the UK in 2011, will take on much of the indirect tax case load.
Brown said: “Tax litigation is an area where we have been steadily growing our presence in the market. In the current environment where the public and HMRC require the clarity of judicial decision to resolve complex tax disputes, a market leading tax litigation business supports clients to ensure the effective determination of dispute.
“Working alongside our tax colleagues, clients can be certain that they have the right mix of industry experience, tax and litigation skills to give them the best opportunity to manage disputes through to their conclusion by litigation or otherwise.”
