TAX EXPERT Paul Welch has joined Baker & McKenzie as partner. Previously a corporate and international tax partner at accounting firm Deloitte, Welch specialises in transaction-based advisory and international tax planning.
Welsh was drawn to the firm’s strong reputation in the taxation arena. “The firm’s tax team is well-regarded and has capability across the full spectrum of tax advisory services. Baker & McKenzie has an excellent reputation on the corporate advisory front, having been involved in a number of high-profile transactions over the years,” he said. “I’m looking forward to working with the firm to grow that tax practice and develop our relationship in the market.”
