Commenting on the move, Mr Balasubramaniam said: “With high-calibre list of clients at KHQ, the reputation of the directors and principals and fantastic workplace culture, bringing my team to KHQ was easy. I am really excited about the upside.”
Managing director David Kelly said he is “delighted” to have Mr Balasubramaniam’s team join the firm, adding: “Prath is a proven operator and his addition to the team adds substantial weight to our high-quality tax services.
Mr Balasubramaniam will be working closely with KHQ’s private wealth group, as well as co-lead the tax and structuring team with Jack Stuk.
Mr Stuk said of the move: “Prath is an outstanding commercial and tax practitioner and a welcome addition to help satisfy the growing demand for tax and commercial services which KHQ has experienced in recent years.”
