Stephen comments: “I am delighted to be joining a group of senior professionals in launching a new and truly innovative transfer pricing advisory firm. Transfer pricing has never been higher as an issue on the global tax agenda. For me, it makes perfect sense that our first office should open in Switzerland, which finds itself at the heart of so many client’s TP structures and is under great international scrutiny within the current G20 debate about tax base erosion and profit shifting”
